This October marks the final instalment of the Acting for Adults classes for 2017 at DUCTAC. What’s the best by far about this course is the people; always a gathering of courageous and mutually supportive participants, eager to learn and share their talent. The “troupes” that come out of this course are simply inspirational.
Respecting individuality and at the same time fostering group-work is a core value of this acting programme. Designed for both absolute beginners and a little bit more experienced performers looking for some skills-maintenance, students explore the craft in a fun while professional theatre setting. Honing their performance and stretching their imagination-muscle, learners delve into a variety of key subjects including: improvisation, voice & movement, Shakespeare for beginners, character development, scene study, and presentation style. In 6 action-packed 2-hour sessions, the learning process involves theatre games-playing, informative talks, acting exercises and scene-creations. Beyond artistic development, students can also benefit from boosting communication and interpersonal skills.
Extra study material, such as play synopses and scene samples, is provided online by the professor. Dress code is comfortable clothing to be able to fully engage in lively, creative low-physical impact activities.
