Program description

MA Acting

MA Acting explores English and Russian traditions of acting, bringing them together in creative interaction. On the course, you will investigate two towering figures of European dramatic literature: Shakespeare and Chekhov. You will apply techniques to a practical investigation of their plays, establishing parallels between their dramatic approaches. By tracing these influences back to their sources, the course highlights the contexts from which contemporary acting draws its strengths.

The course emphasises theatrical approaches. In particular, it focuses on narrative structures, movement expression and conveying complex texts by means of a well-trained voice. You will also explore text and subtext in detail. MA Acting approaches performance by addressing the needs of the Jacobean stage. You will you will focus on vocal accuracy with speed, expressivity on a large scale and engagement with the audience. You will also be encouraged to develop skills required for the realist style. In both cases, the emphasis is on character, action and the relationship between storyteller and audience.
