ATH 235 - Physical Theatre

Course Units: 1
(Not Offered this Academic Year) This course emphasizes the development of the actor’s body as an expressive instrument. Primarily focus is on the actor’s physical presence, actions over language, and use of gestures. Actors/dancers will be trained in techniques that focus on the building of strength, flexibility, improvisation targeting relationships and interplay between performers, and visual elements to create scenic imagery. Workshops pursue a wide range of styles, approaches and aesthetics including dance-theatre, movement theatre, mask, use of live camera to project performers’ actions and interactions with props and scenery. We review European, Japanese and American styles of physical expression to broaden theatrical actions. The course will culminate in a collaborative creation produced and performed at The Yulman Theatre in the Winter Dance Concert. Prerequisite(s): No prerequisite. CC: HUM
