Acting Up in Acting the Classics

Students immersed in comedy improvisation.

Theatre and Performance students in Acting the Classics taught by Lenka Pichlíková Burke, Visiting Assistant Professor of Theatre and Performance, participate in a comedy improvisation exercise.

Acting the Classics integrates discussions, readings, presentations, viewings, and exercises to teach students an appreciation of the elements of both classical and contemporary theatre and performing arts. Using the acting techniques of Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, and others students learn to analyze and understand classic modern drama.
