scene work, and improvisation, students develop their ability to "live
truthfully under imaginary circumstances." The course focuses on
Stanislavky's technique of realistic action (objectives) for
characterization and script analysis. Emphasis on fundamental acting
skills, such as: relaxation, concentration, listening and spontaneity.
The course culminates in a public performance of student scenes.
