A DIRECTOR PREPARES
From concept to creation, the director sets the tone, aesthetic and shape of a production and must have a clear vision to share with all collaborators, administrators/producers and, of course, the cast.
This workshop explores the processes of research and preparation for a production, conceiving the world of the play, exciting the creative team and administrators to get on board with that vision, unlocking clues in the text to help connect the dots, and constructive rehearsal practices for finding inspiration and new ideas from your cast.
This course will also cover:
- how the actor’s process works and how to bring out the best in young actors
- various ways to leverage context in your productions
- method to demystify text in rehearsal
- critical analysis of the work of other directors
- developing, planning and delivering your own directing exercise.
VIEWPOINTS: TEAM BUILDING ON A PRODUCTION
Viewpoints is a technique of training and improvisation that articulates the two dominant elements performers and directors deal with on stage – time and space. Viewpoints allows a group of actors to function together spontaneously and intuitively and to generate bold, theatrical work quickly. It develops flexibility, articulation, and strength in movement and makes ensemble playing really possible.
Developed for the theatre by New York director Anne Bogart and the SITI Company, Viewpoints allows performers and directors to function together spontaneously and intuitively and equips theatre makers with skills to generate dynamic work quickly.
This workshop will immerse participants in the Viewpoints technique and provide an invaluable resource for directors of all styles and experience levels. Viewpoints disrupts vocal and physical habits to bring freshness to engagement with text.
