How do words on the page become a living, breathing theatrical experience? The goal of this course is to crack open the idea of text and to engage it actively, intimately and fearlessly. Taking the text into their own hands, students explore the elements of drama through exercises and assignments that challenge them to find a closer, more integrated and lively relationship to text and its ability to convey action, character and idea. By deepening and expanding their kinesthetic relationship to the written word, students empower themselves as generative artists and lay the groundwork for further and deeper exploration of text as actors, directors, designers and playwrights. At the end of this year-long course, each student will have created his/her own book of original writings, impulses and visions.
