Take the next step in the study and performance of scenes and monologues, with tools for creating precise, focused, relaxed and playful relationships on stage. First, through monologue work, students revisit key basics: objectives, text analysis, listening, relaxed awareness and focus. Next, through scene work with partners, they apply these tools, with the primary focus on cultivating the ability to openly and honestly listen and respond. Students will present one monologue and two scenes. Using in-class exercises they will also hone such skills as concentration, body awareness, emotional freedom and specificity, actions, play, giving, heightening emotional connection, self-awareness, self-confidence, commitment, comfort, confusion, fear, character physicalization, stage fright, memorization and storytelling. If this sounds like a lot, it is! In Fundamentals II, we work, we laugh, and we learn a great deal. Prerequisite: at least one semester of actor training.
