Actor and Director Lab
This course creates a functional and working process for the presentation of plays. Student actors and directors work together on chosen scripts as a way of determining and shaping a common and shared approach to the text. PROOF provides a particular way of reading, analyzing, and breaking down scripts that makes a foundation for the most vivid, physical, and distinctly realized expressions of a play. Students will study and analyze a number and variety of plays from different periods and of different styles as a way of developing a practical way of working and a guide map into a text. Students will be expected to both act and direct in scenes and in short plays for in-class presentations. This class meets once a week.
