Programme Synopsis

ACTPRESSO is an acting-to-express acting course that trains any student even without prior knowledge in theatre performances. Students will learn about the internal and external tools that an actor uses to perform – primarily would be mind, face, body, voice, core emotions, and expressions. Students will also learn to analyze texts and work it to their advantage. Students will understand space awareness and how to react appropriately in different situations. This highly hands-on course promises to develop the students’ confidence and equip them with the essential performance knowledge and techniques they would need to display their acting skills. They will stage mini skits in pairs or in groups, in classrooms, as a final showcase for the entire programme.
