Acting: The Stanislavsky Method
This course is designed to increase your command of the actor's instrument - specifically the vocal, physical, and imaginative tools necessary for the creative work of the actor. We will explore the creative process practically and theoretically, through theater games, exercises, improvisation, and text work. We will explore techniques designed to release creative impulses, to build character, and to give life to dramatic text.
