The overall objective of the course is to build from the experience and skills introduced in Intro to acting, an introductory course in acting. Specifically, we will focus on understanding how to make and play an actor’s choices from a dramatic text, including building character and relationship, playing an action, connecting to the internal life of the character, and using space.


By the end of the course the students should be able to demonstrate an awareness of the following:
 Begin understanding text analysis
 Build a character, which includes finding the physical body of the character,
playing a character’s action, connecting to a character’s imagery, and finding a
character’s voice/language. 
 How to listen and create a relationship to other characters
 How to use space 

There will be no assessment.

Workshop Participation
It is essential students come into the class with an open mind.

Students will bring their own journals and there will be a journaling portion at the beginning of the class - and at the end. The journals are seen as a space to reflect on your learning in a meaningful way.

Being on time
Theatre is created in a community, and each person has a responsibility to the ensemble. Please show up on time. If you miss the beginning it will have an impact on the effectiveness of the class.


Dress Code
Given the nature of the work, appropriate dress for the workshops is mandatory. This includes loose-fitting pants and a T-shirt (no print or graphics to avoid distracting others). Students will go barefoot or they may wear dance slippers during the workshop.

About Instructor
Robert d'Entremont’s acting career began in a high school improv competition; where he won the people's choice award in 2007. In 2008, d'Entremont was cast as Tybalt in the regional French musical Romeo et Juliette which sold out for a week long run at Th'Yarc theatre in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. After high school Robert was selected as one of 18 students accepted into Concordia Theatre performance program; where he worked as an actor on a total of six productions. After receiving his Bachelors of Fine Arts at Concordia, Robert was accepted into the Tom Todoroff Acting Conservatory in New York City. While studying abroad he had to chance to act in two off-Broadway plays at the New Comedy Theatre. With 11 plays under his belt, he soon began his television début on an episode of Patrice Lemieux 24/7, where he was cast in the first two seasons. He has also appeared on popular francophone TV shows such as 30 vies, Mensonges and Un tueur si proche. His recent film credits include Maz as well as starring in the critically acclaimed film Les Rois Mongols. Recently Robert has been turning his focus towards writing and producing his own work. In 2016, he created his own web series, which he shot entirely on his iPhone. The series OPEN, which is soon to be released, was not only written, produced, and directed by d’Entremont, but also stars the actor himself.
