|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Creative Arts (pre 2015)
Available to all students
Students explore their potential for performance within the specifics of acting as
a creative art form and develop a heightened physical and vocal awareness by understanding
and applying psychophysical philosophies in a series of performance exercises, improvisations
and interactions with partners. Students learn essential acting skills such as relaxation,
attention, concentration, truth and belief introduced through Stanislavski methodology.
Ensemble groups apply these skills with the techniques of Cicely Berry, Rudolf Laban
and Viola Spolin to create physical location performance that scaffold to include
mew media technology in performance.
- develop and apply fundamental skills in acting; the physical properties of body and
voice in improvisation;
- apply fundamental acting skills towards performance realisation;
- develop an objective understanding of the performer's personal journey.
