Objective: to understand how, as actors, we can combine the use of eye contact, proxemics and movement and blocking on a stage to bring a character from a script to life and successfully communicate their character to an audience. Students will have the opportunity to add more terminology to their growing 'toolbox' of physical and vocal skills.
