Course B: Dare to Dream - Dare to Direct.
For those with little or no experience who wish to immerse themselves into the world of directing, to those with some plays under their belt who wish to find new ways of working, this hands-on practical workshop allows you to consider the various elements of a director’s practice.
During the week we will negotiate the text, and develop scenes that have clarity, vision and truth. Techniques will be demonstrated, giving participants an up-close insight of how a working director might bring the page to the stage. Learning will be active with participants having the opportunity to direct work over the course of the week and within a supportive and nurturing environment we will evaluate, consider and reflect. While the course concentrates on the director’s creative response to the work with a company of actors, we will also look at the practical areas that a director needs to consider.
