Fundamentals of the art and technique of scenic interpretation. I work for the discovery of one's own gaze and interpretive sensitivity through pretextual creative stage resources. Development of the dramatic technique to articulate characters and scenes.
Screen Acting I
Bases of interpretation applied to audiovisual language with special emphasis on the importance of active listening, the line of thought, the need for action-reaction and the measure of the gesture adapted to the size of the shot. First approach to the concept of self-image and the perception of the receiving person. Basic tools for the analysis of a script from an acting point of view. Gaze training as a spectator of audiovisual interpretation.
Specificities of the interpretive work that is carried out on a television set: needs that differ with respect to a theater scene or a cinematographic work. Overall character arc in one season. How to work under the pressure of immediacy and the lack of rehearsals on TV and how to approach an undefined character in its entirety.
Oral Expression and Voice I
Development of physical, respiratory and sound awareness of one's own. Progression of the Linklater method for the liberation of the natural voice: work with part of the canal (lower jaw, tongue and soft palate), exploration of the basic resonators (chest, mouth, teeth) and expansion of the respiratory capacity necessary to strengthen the the voice, prior to the specific work with the word.
Body Language and Movement I
Body awareness for its application in acting work. Learning different styles of expressive movement aimed at defining the character from the body and the different resources it offers.
Dance and Choreography I
Approach to the technical basis of classical ballet (body position); jazz dance (artistic expression and theatrical personification); and Afro dance (acceptance and liberation of complexes through a playful attitude). Development of musical, artistic, creative and emotional capacities as an expressive vehicle in the relationship between rhythm and movement.
Breathing training for the balance of the voice through the detection and elimination of tensions that hinder its correct functioning. Basic knowledge about the vocal apparatus, its uses and possibilities. Elementary techniques for the control of the singing voice and guidelines for vocal hygiene. Application of knowledge of vocal technique to the interpretation of songs from the musical.
Analysis of Texts, Dramaturgy and Script
Study of the laws of composition and structural characteristics of the dramatic text and the film script. Work focused both on the analysis of theatrical pieces and previous audiovisual scripts and on the development of own materials.
Creation and Development of Projects
Production and creation of own projects both in the theatrical and audiovisual fields. Creative self-sufficiency, work from the development of the idea, the formation of the team and its management, project planning, the testing process, the sales dossier, the exhibition spaces and the subsidies that can be applied for are encouraged.
SHOOTING OF FICTION SEQUENCES ON SET
Simulation of a real shoot with indoor recording of sequences. Filming involves: practical application of text analysis; construction of characters both from the external point of view -costumes, hairdressing, makeup-, and from the internal point of view -justification of their words and reactions-; putting into practice interpretation techniques in front of the camera; brand management; raccord; adaptation to the different types and sizes of the plan.
REPRESENTATION OF STAGE CREATIONS
Stage representation of a theatrical text, scene, monologue or musical number with a cast in which each student has collective group participation and one (or several) characters.
Advanced Acting Training
Progression in the study of the technique and the work of the performer through an in-depth study of a complete dramatic work (a classical and/or contemporary text in which combined genres and styles are played) and which contains complete itineraries of characters of some complexity. Preparation aimed at offering enough versatility that allows actors and actresses to face different types of characters in a professional manner.
Screen Acting II
Deepening in the most appropriate techniques for cinematographic interpretation. Empowerment of imagination, expressiveness, creative talent and knowledge of one's own image and its control as fundamental tools in acting. The role of the actor/actress in the face of the peculiarities of film shooting.
TV and Entertainment Formats Hosting
The particularities of the television presentation. Exploration of one's own "television self" to be able to perform roles as a TV presenter, collaborator of entertainment programs, street reporter, presenter of a gala or awards ceremony, stand-up speaker, etc.
Oral Expression and Voice II
Skill in articulation and flexibility in the vocal register through the Linklater method for the liberation of the natural voice. I work with the different resonators and the psychic qualities associated with them. Learning of specific dynamics that allow a deep connection with the text, so that the voices of the interpreters are authentic expressive vehicles in the act of communication with the public.
Body Language and Movement II
Deepening the possibilities of expression of the actor/actress through the liberation of the body and its movement using music and other resources. Autonomous and team creation from body awareness.
Dance and Choreography II
Improvement of dance technique through styles such as funky, tap and Latin dances. Development of skills such as imagination and creativity to be able to shape choreographic creations. Individual choreography work with a leading character, relationship with the elements of scenery and props. Group work for the collective creation of a montage.
Progression in vocal and interpretive training and in modern singing technique. Work focused on posture. Constriction versus retraction, psychomotor function of sound and conscious phono-respiratory coordination. Theoretical and practical learning of different singing techniques and vocal training. Study of the anatomy and functioning of the respiratory and phonatory systems. Skill training in air management, projection and sound support.
Preparation of a casting with a professional attitude, «material that I present» and «how I sell myself». The image of an actor or actress as a fundamental business card for her professional future. Acquire tools for the creation of a selftape.
Development of the necessary skills to direct a theatrical or audiovisual project. Acquisition of a global vision: from the proposal and pre-production of the project to the organization of tests and the management of the work team.
