Description of module content:

The module will combine intensive practice and engagement with screen acting technique with an extended exploration of stage acting. You will explore approaches to screen acting by working on a variety of increasingly demanding scenes, and building on the first year, the stage acting work enables you to concentrate on an extended role from an edited canonical work, and may be cross-cast with MFA Musical Theatre students. This module will be divided between block intensive rehearsals in the first four weeks, followed by weekly screen acting workshops for the remainder of the trimester. This diverse approach allows you to engage with the craft of acting in different environments and extends your understanding and practice of the theoretical elements of creating and communicating characters.
