Subject Overview:

This is a year where the emphasis shifts to performance. Classes and/or tutorials continue and they are linked with the rehearsal and performance process. Students are now encouraged to set their own objectives in the work in consultation with a staff member. In this year there will be a series of projects which range from performing in plays from the existing repertoire, to new plays, to a Film and TV project, to original works. Acting Projects: A series of plays directed either by staff members, or guest directors or student directors. These plays will be performed to the public and could take place in a variety of venues. Performance Making: Performances may be developed dealing with a selection of the following skills: narrative, character, metaphorical coherence, thematic unity, theatrical conventions, the rule of significance (where the work expresses a significant attitude to some problem concerning humankind and/or his/her relationship to the universe). The development of this work will be guided by students preferences and needs. It could be exercise based or the time could be devoted to the rehearsal of a single piece. The work could be student or staff initiated.

Assessment: Transformation and Mastery of Skill and Methodology are fundamental to all areas of assessment in Acting Projects. Assessment is based upon class participation, level of preparation, and the degree to which the stated objectives have been achieved. Rehearsal process (50%); performance (50%). In order to gain a passing grade in this subject, a pass must be achieved in both areas. Students are required to keep a journal.
