Course contents

During the semester students will work on three succesive practical tasks, focusing on director's work. Each task will be based on a different trigger, chosen together with students: texts (fictional or scientific literature), images (photography, drawings or paintings), recent events (documentary approach), etc. The goal is to try in practice, on small-scale projects, the entire directing process: from the scope of a topic and drafting a concept, choice and spatial composition of theater components, towards a rough performative form that can communicate with target audience. The emphasis will be on work with situation, spatial relationships, rhythm and overal composition of performative forms.
