Description: In this advanced directing course, students will begin by exploring tools central to the director's craft: composition, text analysis, breath, and more. They will then choose scenes from a range of diverse contemporary playwrights and stage them as well as offer rigorous feedback to their peers. In the second part of the course, students will work with interview-based texts to create pieces that combine movement and text in order to explore non-naturalistic theatrical worlds. In the second part of the course, students will work with interview-based texts to direct pieces that combine movement and text. In this portion of the class, students will collaborate with students in Talya Kingston's Documentary Theatre Course (IA-0275). Pre-requisite: a directing or directing/design course at Hampshire or another of the five colleges.
