The beginning year of the BFA Acting focuses on the development of the actor’s instrument through story telling, improvisation, scene study, movement and voice. The intermediate year covers the study and practice of acting styles including Commedia dell’arte, Chekhov and Shakespeare. The final year incorporates screen acting, auditioning, solo creation, singing, voice-over and stage combat. Courses are fully integrated with Theatre at UBC productions and students act in shows that are directed and coached by guest artists and faculty who are working professionals and leaders in their disciplines.
