THEA 441 Directing I: Principles of Directing

Theoretical and practical course in which we will discuss the fundamental principles of directing. Following the performance process from the proto performance to the aftermath, the goal of the class is to learn, step by step, how to transpose the dramatic writing of the text into scenic writing. Since the same dramatic text may produce an infinite number of readings, the crucial task of a director is to determine and concretize a unique way of staging the script. In this class we will exercise and develop the necessary skills, strategies, and methodologies to conceive a strong director's concept, which will be implemented in THEA 442 Directing II.
