Fall- 2017- in love with ACTING this season 😉

ductac1Soon in its 4th year and 20th instalment, the “Introduction to Acting for Adults” course at DUCTAC starts again this Autumn. New troupes will meet October 2nd in Dubai with hearts and minds open to exploring the craft in a fun while professional theatre setting. Honing their performance-skills and stretching their imagination-muscle, participants will explore a wide-array of topics including: improvisation, voice & movement, Shakespeare for beginners, character development, scene study, and presentation style. Learning happens mainly through theatre games-playing involving all group members in 6 action-packed 2-hour sessions over 3 weeks. The course caters to both absolute beginners and experienced thespians, looking for artistic development or to simply boost communication skills and team-work.

Extra study material, such as play synopses and scene samples, is provided online by the professor. Dress code is comfortable clothing to be able to fully engage in fun and creative low-physical impact exercises.
