ACTING 105

ACTING 105 continues the foundational work done in Acting 101 through Acting 104. The focus is on building complex characters grounded in the reality created by the writer, and taking our acting and performing skills to the next level. Our medium will be GROUP SCENES.

One of our key points of focus in Acting 105 will be on performing scenes which involve several characters (in the same scene), and not only listening to and responding to one scene partner, but listening and responding to a group of characters and actors, to create a naturalistic performance. Actors will have a chance to play a wide range of characters as the class moves along.
