Theatre Ontario Boardroom
Suite 350, 401 Richmond Street West, Toronto
The ability of directors and dramaturges to work together to help shape meaningful and entertaining theatre is a crucial part of any production process.
Join Matt McGeachy as he discusses the director-dramaturge collaboration when working on new plays. Learn strategies that can help turn what could be a strained, forced, or distant relationship to an intense and fruitful collaboration as with any member of the artistic of design team.
In this workshop, all participants will take as their starting point Governor-General’s Award-winning David Yee’s carried away on the crest of a wave (Playwrights Canada Press, 2014). Participants will use this text to help shape and model discussions about:
- The pre-production process and collaboration between the director and dramaturge
- The rehearsal process
- Giving and receiving meaningful notes
- Dealing with common issues that arise in this collaboration
- This workshop is aimed primarily at directors, but all interested artists are welcome.
Participants are encouraged to contact Theatre Ontario to receive up to 40% off the play or they can order directly through Playwrights Canada Press.
