Clayton Second semester 2009 (Day)
PER 3050 is a continuation and development of PER 3040. It offers students the opportunity to undertake rehearsal in a professional manner and to bring that project to fruition in the public performance of a major length theatrical work or a number of shorter works. This unit emphasises the quality of all elements of the processes of preparation and rehearsal, in addition to that of its public product.
Students completing PER 3050 should be able to:
- apply particular theoretical methods in the creation of a piece of theatre,
- utilize a range of physical skills in performance,
- demonstrate an understanding of the technical elements of theatre and how they contribute to the aesthetic of the performance,
- develop and refine strategies for the maintenance of the performance through a performance season.
- conceptualise and articulate, in written and oral form, the imaginative basis and developmental processes of an original piece of theatre work.
Three hours class-time each week, plus nine hours weekly of preparation and rehearsal.
