Seeking Panelists - Multi-disciplinary: Integration in Acting Training
Voice/Movement/Acting: 
Can or should the divisionist model survive in an integrating world?
Chaired by Scott Miller, Graduate Acting Program at NYU | Tisch School of the Arts 
Seeking presenters from various disciplines including (but not limited to) Voice, Movement and Acting to form a Panel Discussion/Roundtable exploring Integration in Acting Training. The discussion will focus on whether the traditional conservatory actor training approach, whereby disciplines are divided into the departments of Acting, Movement and Voice, is still the most effective and efficient model for actor training in America.

Areas of discussion may include: the history of how the divisionist model came to be, the roles of voice/speech, movement and acting teaching professionals in the traditional model, the changing landscape of education in general and how that might effect models moving forward, how/if integration serves breaking down old barriers and how can the teaching professional navigate this evolution "safely."

If interested in contributing, please forward a short bio, contact information, and an abstract of your perspective/how you might contribute as part of this panel to Kristi Dana at kristi.dana@gmail.com no later than 12pm on Sunday, November 1st.  Feel free to email for further question and/or to share ideas.

Sincerely,
