Subject Overview:

The aim of Second Year is to consolidate the Principles of Approach to Performance and the development of a personal methodology. The training includes: the investigation of elements inherent in the making and interpreting of work within the contexts of rehearsal and performance. Emphasis is placed upon projects within which the actor will focus on Naturalism, Shakespeare, Scene Study, Contemporary Theatre; playing a series of complex characters and communicating these characters to an audience, inhabiting and communicating different worlds to an audience; continuing to work authentically and achieving this in the context of theatre, film and television; and, using heightened language and applying dramatic structure to their work.

Assessment: Learning is cumulative and progressive, increasing in difficulty as the year progresses, and no formal mark is assigned until year's end. Transformation, Mastery of Skill and Methodology and Active Reflection are fundamental to all areas of assessment. Progressive assessment (50%); rehearsal process (20%); performance (30%).
