Syllabus:

Based on analysis of the text and the staging intent arising from it, students proceed to identifying individual situations and collectively creating dramatic space. They become familiar in practice with the possibilities for expression of mutual relations by thematicized movement and position in space. An integral component is work with given circumstances and practical verification of motivation for action. The main content is playing out and developing of the dramatic situation by the director and actors and the creation of a corresponding mise en scene. At the end of the semester, the students arrive at a whole production that is deliberately composed and thematicized. An integral component of the class is reflection on the results achieved.
