Spring 2013 topic:
THTR 296: Spring-Term Topics in Performing Arts: Creating a Character (4). The “original” acting teacher, the acclaimed Constantin Stanislavski, wrote three major texts on the subject of acting for the stage. His culminating volume, Creating a Role, draws acting students through three major dramatic works paying close attention to the physicality of the character through gestures, sounds, intonations, and speech. Through this process, the image of an honest human or the true artist at work emerges. Sometimes the artist fails but always while seeking truthful answers. (HA). Mish. Spring 2013
