Course Content (Syllabus)
Control of movement, control of voice, articulacy, critical thinking and production of meaning through the sum of mental and expressive actions, are elements that make up the “language” of the actor and, simultaneously make up the “language” of the educator in the classroom. This subject is a field of realisation of this parallel, a field of knowledge and cultivation of those exact functions. In its context, students are trained in first-hand theatrical experience and creation (both stemming from actor training), This knowledge is applied in organising the way in which the educator, in the classroom, handles their thought in relation to their expressive means, by acting as a communicative thinking subject themselves. CHAPTERS: 1. Control of movement 2. Control of the timbre, Articulation 3. Critical thinking and giving of meaning through actions 4.
