Acting

This course is primarily a stage acting course which focuses on the techniques developed to address the demands posed by the great European classics. It is a rewarding route to the general training of actors, offering a solid grounding in acting technique, rooted in the long-established traditions of England and Russia, which are widely considered to be the foremost exponents of the art of the actor. Throughout, the course emphasises theatrical approaches, in particular those relating to narrative structures, movement expression and the conveyance of complex texts by means of a rich, well-trained voice. Questions of text and subtext are explored in detail. The course approaches performance in ways specifically addressing the needs of the Jacobean stage: focusing on vocal accuracy with speed, expressivity on a large scale, engagement with the audience. In addition, the course encourages students to develop skills required by the realist style: multi-layered characterisation, recognising the subtle rapport between text and sub-text, being 'private in public'.

Entry requirements
