Open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Prerequisite: Beginning Theatre Arts and instructor permission.
As students find an interest in a myriad of avenues, they are encouraged to explore them all. The focus of Intermediate Theatre is acting with self awareness and learning relaxation exercises that become a lifetime tool in any discipline a student chooses. Soon the Intermediate Theatre student learns to communicate effectively using the tools explored in class. This full-being communication lead utilizes techniques in Meisner, Chekhov, and Alexander as a movement base. Body mapping becomes vital as the student learns about their own perceptions and how they are perceived. Acting through combat and mask is an exciting way to implement the vocabulary learned in the first semester as it is applied to scenes that require more physical applications. Safety is key so technique is learned along with expression of intentions.
