A dynamic psychological, physical, and emotional technique, Status work is a means for analyzing and portraying characters and relationships.  By unveiling the hidden meanings in gestures, postures, and vocal inflections, Status work trains the actor to control and embody critical aspects of nonverbal communication as a key step in creating characters.  Status Transactions will open your eyes to a world of expressive possibilities for voice and body.

about the instructor: Terry Glaser
Currently a faculty member in the Theatre Arts Department at the University of San Diego, Terry Glaser has over twenty-five years of experience with professional theatres and universities as an acting teacher, stage director, playwright, and theatrical translator.  In addition to her work at USD, Terry has taught acting at UCSD, USC, CalArts, Earlham College, the Michael Chekhov Studio-USA West, the Fritz Theatre, and the Old Globe Theatre.

In her teaching of acting, Terry focuses on the intersection of physicality and psychology, continually developing techniques that reinforce, complement, and extend traditional Stanislavsky training.  She is particularly skilled in acting training for opera and period styles, such as Shakespeare and Restoration Comedy, integrating the special linguistic demands of these nonrealistic styles with the physical, emotional, and imaginative demands inherent in all acting.  In all of her teaching, she fosters in students the ability to release their creativity, expand their personal boundaries, and function at their maximum potential.

Terry’s writing includes original scripts and translations of classic plays and operas.  Her translations include Aristophanes’ The Frogs, Feydeau’s A Flea in Her Ear, Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, and Offenbach’s Croquefer.  Her original plays include Twisted Perspective, which she directed at the California Institute of the Arts.  In addition to directing productions of her own plays and translations, Terry has served as stage director for over 40 professional and university productions of plays and operas across the country. 

Terry holds a B.A. in Playwriting from Brown University and an M.A. in Theatre from Syracuse University.  She has specialized training in the Michael Chekhov Technique, Richard Schechner’s Rasaboxes™, masks, Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, Period Style, and Lecoq.
