Students will be introduced to professional acting techniques. We will investigate different characters that will be shaped by the students through specific tasks and exercises. This year the emphasis will be given to the body.” Life is expansive and it also expands in territory, physical and psychological, discovering spaces, forms, ideas, meanings, sensations –this should be done as a dialogue: receiving from others what others have created, giving them the best of our own creation. Students will be handed daily monologue and duet scenes to work with. They will explore the character in terms of speech, physicality and background. They will learn different ways of approaching a text. All characters will interact in a specific given circumstance. Examples include: Miming, use of natural environment and improvisation. Therefore, students will explore their vocal capacities, imagination and creativity levels. Students will also have the chance to put together their characters’ costumes and scenery. Students will be asked daily to perform their scenes in front of the class. This will increase their confidence, prove their daily progress and help overcome any stage fright they might have. Teen “Actors Studio” can collaborate with the Hands-On Filmmaking workshop. Teen “Actors Studio” students can act in the short films directed by the Hands-On Filmmaking students.
