THEA-UT 210, Class #3442 | 4 units | Instructor: Mary McCann
This course will meet online for summer 2020.
Founded by playwright David Mamet and actor William H. Macy in 1983, the Atlantic Acting School is dedicated to training in the Practical Aesthetics Technique. Outlined in the book A Practical Handbook for the Actor, Practical Aesthetics is both a philosophy of theatre and a technique of acting. The simple objective of the technique is to provide the student-actor with a set of clearly defined and repeatable acting principles and skills. We seek to demystify the process of acting with an approach that aims at objectivity, clarity, and practical habits. This intensive program offers an introduction to Practical Aesthetics through three main elements of the technique: Script Analysis, Performance Technique, and Moment Lab. In addition to these technique classes, students will receive training in Vocal Production.
