This subject aims to extend the kinaesthetic and perceptual awareness of body, voice and speech in performance and refine the actor’s skills in embodiment for revelation and transformation of character. It continues to develop a coherent practice of integrating imagination, body, voice and intention. Areas of investigation include experiential explorations and analysis of the dramatic elements of performance. These include space, time, gesture, action, rhythm, resonance, speech and the structure of language as it relates to transformation of character.
On completion of this subject students should be able to demonstrate:
Vocal and physical precision for character transformation and revelation of dramatic intention in performance.
Practical Studio Class Work (Focusing on achievements against set criteria in areas such as: developing a methodology, transference of skills into performance, professional attitude and commitment.) (40%)
