The ability to identify and act on impulses is central to acting and many other activities. This course teaches students to access their innate abilities to create spontaneously, and, in the process, to build self-confidence and collaborative skills. Activities include theatre games, movement exercises, storytelling exercises, and mask work. Because the work can lead in a number of directions (such as explorations of personality, social status, role-playing, character, and the use of improvisation as a rehearsal tool), the specific content of the course may change from year to year.General Education: Artisitic Expression
