Course handbook


Who are we when we are performing? This course explores the theory and practice of acting and performing. Techniques of improvisation and play are introduced to consider persona, identity, use of the body, and the performer's embodied presence as primary means of communicating with an audience. Utilising concepts that inform creative performance, students will perform in a variety of contexts including live, mediated, and digital.
