Syllabus Description:

Drama 354: Archetypes:

Have you ever felt in your acting you were playing with only a part of a full orchestra, or with just a few colors in the box of Crayola crayons? Are there roles that you have never played that you wish for a way to dive into? Welcome to the world of Archetypes. Through specific vocal, physical, and imaginative journeys, we will explore the essences of Archetypes found in myth and legend from many diverse cultures. As actor training, it can offer a pathway into character development, and a portal into the art of transformation for the actor. The work will be applied to monologues and/or songs.

Catalog Description: 
Explores various psychophysical exercises and techniques that awaken and synthesize the breath, body, voice, intellect, emotion and imagination in character transformation for the actor. Substantial focus on the foundational work of Michael Chekhov. Prerequisite: either DRAMA 351, DRAMA 352, or DRAMA 353.
