Course Description This course will examine the original vision a director can bring to a written text. We will explore and define different directorial styles in terms of acting, design, language, politics, relationship to the audience, and world-of-play. We will study five dramatists; students will make work in conversation with each figure and their particular political and artistic projects. Students will make a total of four fully-realized scenes; the two final pieces will each be presented twice, with time for rehearsal in between. Students will work with actors who come from both inside and outside the class pool. Students will have the opportunity to stage work for proscenium, in-the-round, and environmentally. There will be at least two outings to see productions in New York City. Students will write three short papers that engage with and analyze live performance. This course places equal weight on the dramatic language of a play text and a theatre practice guided by images.
