Actors and Directors Studio
An advanced course focusing on the work of actors and directors in rehearsal. Through work on scenes both outside and in front of the class, students will develop the ability to work in partnership to activate the central struggle of a play and translate the spirit of the text into the physical world. We will examine in a very practical way the communication tools and rehearsal strategies which most effectively engage the creative energies of all collaborators as they work to articulate, through bold and specific choices, a directorial vision in four dimensions. This course meets once a week for four hours. This class meets twice a week.
