THDA 240 - Brain to Bone: Aliveness, from Rehearsal through Performance

The performance experience, for both actor and spectator, is a collaboration in “aliveness:” switched-on cognition, participatory embodiment systems (muscles, nerves, organs, etc.), moment-by-moment discovery. This course will establish effective, body0based practices for character exploration and original performance creation. The work of the class will involve anatomy study and research, exercises and explorations, and ultimately, solo performance work. The class is physical and meets six hours per week. Preference given to students with acting experience, though well-described curiosity and commitment will be considered favorably. Prerequisites: sophomore standing and permission of instructor. Prerequisite(s): sophomore standing and permission of instructor. Offered alternating fall semesters. (4 Credits)
