The Young Actors Camp at Unity College is a week-long acting intensive for students 13-18 who want to refine their acting abilities. Each day a theatrical lens will be explored: understanding voice, stage presence and movement, characterization, the history of theatrical styles and the cultural context in which they emerged, and building a performance.
June 26 -30, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
There will be an overarching theme for the week: the 12 guide posts of theater. These are well known theories which encompass different essentials of the theater: relationship, conflict, the moment before, humor, opposites, discoveries, communication & competition, importance, find the events, place, gaming and roll playing, mystery and secret (and some argue for a 13th : mischievousness). Students will be asked to think about these guide posts as they explore the larger context of each day.
Students are asked to bring their own lunch and comfortable cloths to move in.
Students should have some prior experience in theater, or should have some concept of the basics of stage.
