Unit description:

Students explore their potential for performance through the application of various techniques drawn from contemporary approaches to acting, voice production and movement. Students develop a heightened physical and vocal awareness; explore the possibilities within their own voice and free themselves from the restrictions of their habitual movement behaviours. Students discover and practice improvisation methods and theatre exercises in the exploration of the performer’s creative and expressive potential. The students are also introduced to the actor’s qualities of energy, commitment, enjoyment, freedom and development of confidence and courage.
