Company Acting Classes for 15-17 year-olds
'Company' is the term used to describe a group of actors.
When you become a member of Company with Perform Australia, you'll be applying and refining your acting skills in a wide range of theatrical and cinematic styles.
From term to term, you'll be learning through acting exercises, scene work, improvisation, monologues, acting for camera, script analysis, mask and mime, and character development processes. Script content varies from term to term, but may involve anything from investigation of current social issues, through to exploring familiar character types and archetypes, heightened language, and how to create believable performances.
Each class is one-and-a-half hours long.
Actors in Company would be well-prepared to move onto our 10197NAT Certificate IV in Acting for Stage and Screen.
Term 3 & 4, 2020
In Term 3 and Term 4 we'll be moving towards our end-of-year live performances!
In Term 3, you'll be working on character development - this year, around a "royal" theme: think kings and queens, knights and princesses, villains and peasants, and even court jesters! ... But we'll interpret these in some interesting and contemporary ways, drawing on your own experiences and reflecting important social issues of the day.
As the weeks go on, you'll start working on a script for your play. Lessons will then focus on the rehearsal process and refining your role for performance. And at the end of Term 4, you'll perform in a theatrical setting and bring your characters to life on stage.
