THA-3040 Improvisation for Actors

3 credits

Prerequisite: THA-1041, THA-2121.

This course is an introduction to the essence of improvisational acting, namely "play." Through a variety of exercises, improvisational games, solo work and improvised scenes, students should develop the confidence to let go of the need "to perform" and focus rather on the willingness "to live in the moment." They should find the courage to give up having to "get it right" and instead trust in the adventure of spontaneity.
