Actors Instrument (DRA2170.02, section 2)

Avery Glymph

In our work as actors, we honor the truth… using our imagination. How? Our art is the expression of genuine reaction and the following of impulses truthfully, while serving the telling of the story. Through a progressive series of exercises, improvisations, questions and answers, some light reading, writing, and engaging scene work, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of acting. Along with Character and text analysis, students will engage in movement, discussions, and activities outside of class. You will need to rehearse at least 2 – 6 hours a week and be expected to see and critique productions on and off campus.

Learning Outcomes:
The goal of the class is to introduce the student to the multi-faceted foundations of acting, experiencing the moment-to-moment truth, vulnerability, action, and bravery in a sustained and safe way.
