In  Acting II  the training includes defining/exploring Goals and Needs, Actions/Tactics, and Expectation. We learn how to collaborate, to examine a scene, and rehearse consciously. The first character you explore is ‘you’. It requires commitment, honesty, boldness, trust, imagination, and time. The focus in the work is listening, responding, and an investing in your partner.

In Acting III the work focuses on physical actions methodologies in which students will strengthen acting tools, improvisation practices, scene and character analysis. Course objective is to develop the ability to perform a complex, multi-layered character. They will be assigned four scenes, and will be required to rehearse outside of class with scene partners/teams for in-class presentations throughout the semester. The process require discipline, commitment and vulnerability.
