Brief Outline of Course:
This course will be in the form of a master class where participants are directing in scenes or monologues. There will be a strong emphasis on developing acting craft: including objectives, timing, rhythms, pace, new ideas and use of the breath and how these techniques serve the greater goal – that of elevating the play.
