You will prepare a short monologue/ presentation that you will perform in class. The monologue/ presentation will be taped. We will then watch them and you will receive feedback on performance, technique and overall presence. One of the benefits is that this way you will be able to align the way you perceive yourself and the way others perceive you.
We will do experiential exercises to unblock emotions- emotions being the fuel you use to achieve your goals. We will work on theatre games of connection and presence. We will do improvisation and stand up comedy exercises to explore vulnerability, being present and "thinking on your feet."
We will put the theory in practice by "workshopping" scenes from Euripides' "ELECTRA".
