In this course, the projects are designed to synthesize the student's theatrical training and experience through solo performance as well as ensemble-based critical support. While the course's performance work is explored through an actor's lens, the class is open to all advanced drama students who meet the prerequisites. Students will be encouraged to develop and articulate their own aesthetic convictions through an examination of the creative process, the development of original solo material, the exploration of the theater profession within the current American and international theatrical climate, the development of new audition pieces, small group presentations and an analysis of plays and other reading assignments. The course closes with a public showcase of the original material written and developed over the semester. Prereq: L15 240E/2401 and 341/3411. This course is open only to seniors and graduate students.
