Adelaide College of the Arts (AC Arts) offers a 2 Term, part-time program, for students who want to follow their passion and dream of becoming an actor.
Students will be guided through structured improvisation in order to gain knowledge and skills to begin to build scenes, accept and build offers and explore characters. Improvisation is an excellent basis to learn acting skills, as it teaches students to listen, respond, and follow impulses in the moment of performance.
This subject will help students to better understand their bodies in performance.? Tutors will use various movement techniques to develop students’ awareness of their physical abilities, and to learn to use their bodies to fully express themselves as artists. An actor’s body is vital in creative expression, so this subject sets students up well to study acting with an open, expressive physical instrument.
Students will learn the fundamentals of acting in this subject. They will learn how to begin to create a character, analyse text, and work with other actors in a constructive and creative manner.? The tutor will teach students to use research, physical exercises and imagery to build acting skills.
This subject will help students to develop audition confidence, experience and techniques. Students will prepare audition pieces which suit them as performers. They will prepare speeches ranging from classical to contemporary, with the possibility to also explore film auditions.
Please wear comfortable clothes in which you can move very freely.
