Acting 2

Acting II builds on the work of Acting I with a deeper exploration of Realism and Naturalism on stage through textual analysis, scene study, physical exercises, research and performance.  The material in the course focuses on works of European and American playwrights who may include Anton Chekhov, Rachel Crothers, Henrik Ibsen, Lillian Hellman, August Strindberg, Susan Glaspell, Gerhart Hauptmann, Elsa Berstein (aka Ernst Rosmer), Nikolai Gogol, etc.  Theoretical work would be complementary, based on the tradition of practitioners like Constantin Stanislavski, Richard Boleslavsky, Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg, deepening a student's understanding of psychological realism.
