Theater ArtsTHEA 21B Acting Studio 1B, Actors' Physicality

Uses a rigorous physical approach to acting (rather than the text-based approach of course 21A). Provides an outside-in starting point for theatrical creation and study, balancing and countering the inside-out approach of Stanislavski-based actor training. Emphasis on physical characterization, ensemble theater, mask work, and object performance. May involve practices, theories, and readings of Jerzy Grotowski, Eugenio Barba, Jacques Lecoq, and/or Tadashi Suzuki. Enrollment by interview only.
