This subject builds on methodologies from first semester in Acting and Performance 1. Students will further develop performance skills and the composition of original work, as they begin to explore extant text. This subject furthers knowledge(s) of the core principles of acting and performance: body, space, action, word, meaning, score, rhythm and repetition through improvisation and text based work. Performers will continue to explore working spontaneously and imaginatively within a theatrical context. This unit is co-delivered to BFA Acting and BFA Theatre students.
