This is a core module for first year students on the BA Hons Physical Theatre programme. The course provides an initial training in acting theory, method and practice based on the ability to change, adapt, extend, perceive, accept and reject. Students look outside themselves, approaching firstly improvised situations and then scripted text in imaginative and collaborative ways. By the end of the course students will know how to start work on a play and will have begun collaborative text work. They will be able to begin to create a character from a text and to start the process of creating the world of the play.
