Course contents

Curriculum:

  1. Analysis of a text and plan for a production.
  2. The situation and creation of dramatic space.
  3. Movement and position in space.
  4. Given circumstances and motivation of action.
  5. Relations between characters and initiation of the dramatic situation.
  6. Creating mise en scene and barriers to action.
  7. Storytelling and composition of the production as a whole.

Syllabus:

On the basis of analysis of the text and the production plan arising from it, students proceed to identify individual situations and together they create the dramatic space. They become practically familiarized with the expressive possibilities of the relations by thematized movement and position in space. An integral part is work with given circumstances and practical verification of the motivation of action. The main content is acting/directing development and initiation of dramatic situations and creation of a corresponding mise en scene. By the end of the semester, the students arrive at an entire, deliberately composed, thematicized production. An integral part of the class is reflection on the achieved results.
