Aims

Content

Students will be cast, as student actor/actresses in a third year project. This project will, in the opinion of the Module Co-ordinator, be significantly different to the project undertaken in DR31720 and afford differing opportunities for each individual student's development as an actor. This project will be led by an experienced practitioner who will construct an appropriate rehearsal methodology specifically designed for the project. During rehearsals it is hoped that the students will encounter and experience the relevant games, improvisations, exercises and workshops, which will aid each student's understanding and ability to fulfill the acting requirements specified by his/her allocation to the project. After the rehearsal period (usually a minimum of 4 weeks) the project will culminate in four or five public performances. This will be followed by a post-production discussion with all those who participated in the project, during which students will analyse the process experienced and assess their personal contribution to the project.
