Matt’s 5 week course teaches the fundamentals of acting by workshopping a popular scene from a contemporary play. Through scene study techniques, students learn to understand the intention of the writer. With an understanding of intention, the actors work together to develop their repertoire of skills to convey this message through a thoughtfully crafted scene. In the final week, students will perform this scene in front of each other, family and friends in a showcase performance at the Ferntree Gully Village Fair. The deliberate time constraint of five weeks encourages the students to own their piece, making timely choices on a variety of performance elements.
