BlackRock Artistic Director Kelly Chauncey leads this class as it involves a combination of theory and practice, equipping the students with the fundamental tools to create a character and develop the inner life of their character. Through exercises, discussion and scene work, they will study and actively experience the most well-known acting theories and techniques that aid the "contemporary actor". Techniques and theories from Stanislavski, Chekhov, Strasberg, Adler, Meisner and Hagen, in addition to basic scene analysis, will facilitate a thorough exploration into the actor's process. Students will dive into Monologue techniques while learning how to attach themselves to each layer of every character within them.
