Acting:Pedagogy, Technique, and Performance

This course offers students opportunities to explore the development and implementation of acting curricula for young actors, specifically focused on the performance of contemporary scenes and monologues, with young people between the ages of 12 and 18; these young actors are all members of the NYU-Steinhardt Youth Theatre Ensemble. The curricula will be created and examined from artistic, technical and pedagogical perspectives, using 20th and 21st century texts from a variety of sources. In a uniquely theoretical and 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 and performance as benchmarks for reflection and revision.
