Interpretative Acting II (DRA3030)

30 credits

The Interpretative Acting module has two strands.

Work in small workshops where individual attention can be given to actors on their approach to the work of acting. To start this work, students should bring a monologue of their own choosing to the beginning of the course. These workshops will continue alongside the other strand for most of the course.

The other strand is working with students from the directing module towards presentation of two pieces.

The first piece will be a duologue selected by the directors and cast by the course leader.

For the second piece students from the Creative Actor module will combine with Directing, modules to work collaboratively together to create/interpret a piece. (Choices re material and approach are made by Directing students but actors collaborate fully within creative/interpretative processes rather than being told what to do! Each Directing student writes a ‘treatment’ outlining the proposed material and approach. Actors will get copies of these. Then actors will hand in their first, second and third choices for roles. Casting will be done by tutors.
