AU: 3.0
Programme: NIE

A practical exploration, from the actor's perspective, of how theatre is devised and applied to text. Working with the body and voice as instruments, a number of 20th century theatre-making methodologies will be explored, such as those deriving from the work of Stanislavski Artaud, Brecht, Michael Chekhov and Grotowski. Technical skills in lighting and sound in managing the stage will also be introduced. As the assessment is continuous in nature, class attendance is compulsory.
