BA Honours in Theatre (Acting) - Acting 2a THEA 2801   Acting 2a
The second year of the Acting Program introduces students to performance approaches that range from the classical to the contemporary. Students will receive a strong foundation in classical theatre methods through detailed exploration of heightened texts such as those of William Shakespeare. Using these texts, students will uncover performance clues embedded in the playwrights' writing in order to inspire characterization, action, and dramatic context. Students will also receive a foundation in devised theatre creation through exploration of central principles such as collaboration, style, and ensemble. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on discipline, dedication to craft, and how to become an informed and vital contributor to the creative process.
