This subject extends the actor in longer generative and interpretative performance projects. Students develop the skills they have acquired and apply them to performance in contemporary generative work and classical material. Actors will explore working within both stage and screen production processes and be involved in the development, rehearsal, performance and evaluation of material. Students continue to develop their own training methodology via intense staff led training exercises and interpretive rehearsal processes.

Intended learning outcomes

  • Apply skills in acting, movement and voice in performance contexts
  • Apply effective capacities to assert self, work autonomously and collaboratively within the ensemble
  • Employ aesthetic, technical and creative frameworks in a range of performance applications
