THTR 3303 Acting III: Spontaneity and Imagination (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Acting III explores the essential principles of acting using the methods developed by Sanford Meisner and William Esper. Through a progression of structured improvisations, the actor’s ability to work moment by moment and to truthfully live in those moments is developed. These exercises are designed to stimulate impulses, sharpen concentration and listening skills, and develop the imagination, spontaneity and emotional skills of the actor. During the semester, students apply the expertise acquired through these exercises to scene work.
