YOUNG SERIES: Young Actors' Studio (Chinese) 《青年演艺培训坊》

(For Youths Aged 13 to 17)

 

"Discover and create a stage that belongs to you" - Liow Shi Suen, Trainer for Young Actors' Studio (Chinese)

 

Overview

Young Actors’ Studio (Chinese) is designed to impart a comprehensive understanding and vital skills to budding young actors, through exercises with increasing levels of complexity. Individual actors will be grounded in the core elements of performance and equipped with the focus, imagination and confidence to perform a simple play in front of an audience. As a group, the course will also ingrain the collaborative nature of theatre through team-building activities that fosters a spirit of communal effort.

To expose and deepen the students’ understanding in the different genres of stage performances, materials adapted from scenes of various classic plays will be used to strengthen their ability in character building, knowledge in interpreting scripts and presenting them from their own perspectives. Cross talks will also be used as a tool to improve participants’ expressions through their voice, body language, as well as introducing the importance of rhythm in conversations.

Through in-class performances and constructive feedbacks among the students, this course also aims to deepen their understanding of the lesson and inculcate the idea that there are always multiple perspectives in art.

A final performance is incorporated at the end of the semester for students to showcase their talents and understanding on the key learning points.
