T420 Acting IV:  Realism
Prerequisites:  THTR T320 Instructor Recommendation.

May be taken for Graduate credit.

This course is concerned with how the actor works with the concept
of ensemble acting.  Major emphasis is on moment to moment action,
as well as on detailed character analysis.  Students study and
perform characters in realistic scenes from Chekhov, Strindberg,
Ibsen, and American playwrights (1945 to the present).  We will also
read and discuss the different approaches to realistic acting as
developed by such acting theorists as Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, and
Strasberg.
