This course will continue to use "you" (yourself) as the source and foundation of true emotion and behavior. Skills of relaxation, trust, observation, substitution, sense memory, emotional memory, imagery, inner objects, professionalism, concentration, actor scoring, script analysis, and believability will be examined more thoroughly than in Beginning Acting through participation in class acting exercises, monologue and scene work, analysis and improvisation. Emphasis will be placed on learning multiple approaches to organic character development and relationship. Specific topics of study include: energy, connection, breath, spatial awareness, inner objects, endowing, the "moment before", centers, physicality, animal work and other image based characterization, and improvisation.
