LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art): Classical Acting for the Professional Theatre
|Institution||LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art)|
|Department||Production and Technical Arts|
Are you an international actor looking to deepen and develop your craft through an intensive exploration of classical plays? This course is for students who are intending to work in the USA after graduation.
Challenging and rewarding, this MA acting postgraduate course is for international students who wish to enhance and develop their craft through experiencing world-class British Conservatoire style training.
This intensive masters degree in acting is delivered through an inspiring and exhilarating programme of classwork, scene study and workshop performances, culminating in a public performance in our largest performance space, the Sainsbury Theatre.
Working on plays from the Shakespearean, Jacobean, Spanish Golden Age, French classical and Restoration periods you will discover how classical theatre translates across centuries, cultures and languages, and build an awareness of their historical, political and social context, and their impact on modern theatre.
You will take classes in craft skills to develop and strengthen your existing abilities and prepare you for the rehearsal process. Delivered throughout the year in long modules, these will include acting (voice, textual analysis and contextual studies); movement, stage combat and historical dance; and music and singing.
You will progress through the application of your acquired knowledge of both theory and practice as it relates to the intelligent exploration and development of original characters. And you will also complete a thesis presentation reflecting on the relationship between your classical training and contemporary theatre practice.
Your intensive year will culminate in the staging of a Shakespeare production to which agents, casting directors and members of the public are invited.
Finally, a unique feature of this course is the chance to train as a LAMDA Exams teacher.
