ABOUT THE EVENING CONSERVATORY
THE FIRST SEMESTER provides a concentrated focus on the beginning foundation work of the Atlantic Technique. Emphasizing script analysis, playing an action truthfully, working moment to moment, students begin to develop new work habits. Students learn the basics of vocal production, speech and movement technique.
THE SECOND SEMESTER solidifies the students’ understanding of script analysis and begins to encourage integration of emerging skills. Students will perform an exploration on Private Life, which is a structured improvisation that they write, research and perform. The semester culminates in a final workshop performance.
THE THIRD SEMESTER challenges the student to apply their training under the pressures of performance. This semester includes advanced scene study, an ensemble performance project and an introduction to the business.
