Acting and Producing for Stage (EGL353)
|Organisational Unit||Creative Media, Arts and Design|
|Teaching Timetables||Murdoch S2
|Description||Builds on previous units to offer students further opportunities to develop their skills in staging a major theatre production. The unit will involve an in-depth practical exploration of a selected theatrical mode, theory or artist. The production will provide students an opportunity to showcase their acting and production skills before industry representatives. Students undertaking this unit will consolidate their theoretical, critical and creative skills and knowledge so that they are industry-ready graduates from the Theatre and Drama major.|
|Unit Learning Outcomes||1. Demonstrate substantive knowledge of a range of theoretical and practice-led models of drama, theatre and performance.
2. Demonstrate a capacity to apply critical analysis to contemporary social and philosophical debates, informed by individual research in the field of performance ethics.
3. Demonstrate appropriate use of techniques for researching, planning and producing analytically or critically advanced dramatic or theatrical performances that convey a knowledge of cultural contexts and technologies.
Create and understand dramatic and theatrical texts and productions in a genre, mode and style to communicate effectively and persuasively with different contexts and spectators across cultural and other boundaries.
|Timetabled Learning Activities||Workshop: 3 hours per week.|
|Unit Learning Experiences||The unit will involve workshop-based learning and performance activities, including rehearsals and performances.
Within the workshops, students will develop professional production skills.
In the written assessments, students will utilise critical reflection skills to analyse texts/scripts in production.
|Other Learning Experiences||Rehearsals as required.|
|Assessment||Assessments are designed to give students the opportunity to develop, consolidate and extend their knowledge and understanding of the key ideas, texts and theories covered in the unit. They are also designed to extend students' capacity to develop rigorous arguments and discussions (orally and in writing), to develop skills of independent research, and to develop confidence in working with primary and secondary materials.|
|Prerequisites||Successful completion of EGL123 or EGL124 or EGL106, and successful completion of EGL236 or EGL240, or completion of, or concurrent enrolment in, EGL253 and EGL254.|
