Five Approaches to Acting (DRA4170.01)

Kirk Jackson

Taking as our premise that acting is the study of the art of human relationships (actor to actor as well as actor to audience) this course is a comprehensive overview of the theories behind the practice of various ways an actor works from a script to create a character to tell a story. Using the text book “Five Approaches to Acting” by David Kaplan as a study guide, as well as supplemental reading from Stanislavski, Brecht and social anthroplogist Ruth Benedict, we will read plays and study performances on film. Assignments will include both written responses and in depth scene work.

Corequisite: Dance or Drama lab assignment.
