Course description

Shifting from theory to practice, this seminar course introduces students to the evolution of contemporary directing and dramaturgy (figure and field). Structured in three modules, the course shifts from the study of the historical evolution of directing and dramaturgy and then moves to consideration of contemporary practice augmented by practical skills development. In the final third of the course, you will direct a short play or scene from a play for public performance.
