Performance Skills 2 FPB226

Launceston

Introduction

In this unit you will encounter practice-based approaches to interpreting, designing and performing scenes from a canonical performance text under the direction of the Unit Lecturer. Throughout semester you will apply performance skills learnt in introductory units FPB130 and FPB132 to rehearse and present scenes from a canonical performance text. You will develop skills in research and the interpretation of contextual material. Your practice-based explorations of theatre craft and form will be supported by the study of performance theories and methodologies, and you will learn how thematic interpretation of content can be represented through the elements of theatre.
