YOUNG ACTORS PROGRAM

In this unit students will be introduced to the basics of acting, character development and exploring techniques from Improvisational Theatre, Physical Theatre and Method Acting. Students will be taught a range of different acting techniques from Eric Morris, Sanford Meisner, David Mamet and Rudolf van Laban and mentored on how to apply them to scene work.
Term 2 - 3 May to 5 July
In this unit students will explore the actor's approach to Australian contemporary and European modern texts using techniques from Konstantin Stanislavsky's psychophysical approach and Stella Adler's actor training. Students will learn complementary approaches to script analysis and be introduced to the fundamental technical work of an actor's daily practice.
Term 3 - 18 August to 6 October
In this unit student's will be introduced to classical texts through the work of William Shakespeare. By approaching Shakespeare from an actor's perspective, students will apply contemporary acting methods to understand the texts and build confidence with the language used.
