Duration: Two years, full-time
The Directing Program offers experienced theatre artists the opportunity to further their knowledge of the craft of directing. It will provide a unique laboratory setting for the theatre director to collaborate with actors, writers, designers and technicians devoted to the art of making theatre.
This highly individualized Directing Program will be aimed at an emerging or early career theatre director who wants to develop his/her practice, by posing specific artistic and practical questions, and exploring the ideas and visions that personally inspire the director, while developing the tools to communicate a unique vision.
Throughout the year the directing student will be mentored by prominent theatre directors and practitioners.
The aim of the Directing Program is to develop future theatre leaders who will have a solid grasp of the director's craft, experience with both contemporary and classical texts, and the skills to engage the imaginations of designers, writers, actors and audiences in a spirit of adventure and risk taking.
