Part-Time Faculty – Theatre Openings

The Ira Brind School of Theatre at the University of the Arts is looking to expand its pool of part-time adjunct instructors based in the Philadelphia, New Jersey, and NYC area. The four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts Acting program not only prepares students for careers in the professional theater or for continued study at the graduate level, but also offers a breadth, depth and variety of study and practice, enabling the student to function successfully as an active and productive member of society at large.

We are actively looking for part-time instructors for our sophomore Acting Studio: Technique I & II course for the 2017/18 school year. We are also looking to expand our pool of instructors for our Acting on Camera courses.

Acting Studio: Technique I & II
Part-time instructors are needed to teach at least one and, if needed, up to two sections of the two semester sequence of the sophomore Acting Studio that meets twice a week for 3 hours per class. The curriculum for Technique I & II is focused on the techniques of Constantine Stanislavski and Michael Chekhov. Instructors must be capable of fusing Stanislavski’s tools with the psycho-physical techniques of Michael Chekhov. The ideal candidate will have an MFA and experience teaching Chekhov and Stanislavski at the under-graduate level and is capable of leading the psychophysical exercises laid out in Chekhov’s To the Actor or On the Technique of Acting.

Acting on Camera I & II
Part-time instructors are needed to instruct foundational technique for our Acting on Camera courses that meet once per week. The first semester curriculum, which is a degree requirement in the junior year, is focused on defining the differences between stage and on camera acting which is done through shooting varying coverage (e.g. wide, two-shot, close-up, etc.) of scene work. The second semester is elective and focuses on deeper on camera technique as students learn about continuity through coverage and finish the semester with edited scenes. The ideal candidate will a terminal degree or commensurate experience and have experience teaching on camera technique at the undergraduate level.
