Intensive Program in Theater
Students wishing to specialize intensively in theater may apply to study at the Ecole Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq. The Lecoq technique, a form of physical theater, applies the traditions of mime and dramatic choreography to acting. Teaching is based on the dynamics of movement, involving the body as the primary element of recognition of the living being.
Core faculty specializing in movement and improvisation are supplemented by guest instructors from the Parisian theatrical community.
The intensive program carries eight credits per semester. Students in intensive programs also take one SLC seminar of their choice and a required French language course (see Sample Intensive Programs).
The Lecoq Program is a full year program.
Sample Intensive Program (8 credits per semester, for 15 to 20 class hours per week)
- Movement Analysis I
- Movement Analysis II
- Improvisation I
- Improvisation II
- Improvisation III
All students applying to the intensive theater program must be approved by and receive initial guidance from Shirley Kaplan, Professor of Theater at Sarah Lawrence College. Final programs will be arranged and approved by the SLC Paris Program Director.
