THEA 055. Directing II: Devising for Directors


This course explores a variety of approaches to generating performance texts for the stage, including improvisation, game structure, adaptation of nondramatic texts for performance, and verbatim theater techniques. We will also discuss varying approaches and best practices with respect to artistic collaboration. We will have the opportunity to put these approaches into practice while working with actors and designers to create original characters and play-worlds.  The course culminates in the public presentation of final projects. This class is offered in Spring 2021 without prerequisite.
