Hours & Credits
This module introduces students to the theories - critical, scientific, folk and common-sense -
which have informed contemporary and historical approaches to actor training. In the last century in particular,
the 'guide' or 'manual' became an increasingly popular means of disseminating ideas and examples of acting
technique and training. The course invites students to undertake critical readings of such works by examining
their use of language and their historical and cultural contexts, as well as the work of their exponents.
