Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

From conceptualization to rehearsal, this course will be an examination/exploration of a directing process — a how-to-go from your first reading’s gut impression to moment-by-moment rehearsal with the actors.

Students will look at the relationship between instinctual reactions, concept, research, analysis, design, characterizations and the rehearsal process. Central to this directing process is the principle of action — the tool through which a director can tell stories, motivate actors, visualize designs and actualize metaphors. The play, The Possibilities, by Howard Barker will be the text used in this class. This workshop is open to actors and directors alike. Limited enrollment.

Cost (includes HST)

$550 Regular and $450 Equity/Artist discount.
