Acting:Pedagogy, Technique, and Performance

This course offers students opportunities to explore the development & implementation of acting curricula for young actors, specifically focused on the performance of contemporary scenes & monologues, with young people between the ages of 12 & 18; these young actors are all members of the NYU-Steinhardt Youth Theatre Ensemble. The curricula will be created & examined from artistic, technical & pedagogical perspectives, using 20th & 21st century texts from a variety of sources. In a uniquely theoretical & practical setting, students will explore the exercises as a community - led by the course instructor, ultimately partnering with the NYU-Steinhardt Youth Theatre Ensemble to investigate specific approaches to acting in process - using scaffolding assessment & performance as benchmarks for reflection & revision.
