NM3703 - Directing Project
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Creative Arts (pre 2015)
Students focus on the distinction between the performance artist and the director
examining the idea of alternative space as the director's stage. Students research
the historical developments of directing for stage and contemporary performance artists
including Annie Sprinkle, Karen Finley, Gilbert and George, Laurie Anderson and others
to provide students with contextual frameworks to site their own performances. Individual
projects integrate image, text, graphic, light and sound into the final theatrical
product and students participate in all facets of the director's process: demonstrating
qualities of leadership, choosing/writing a performance; developing the concept; auditioning,
conceptualising; design, costumes, sound and lighting; exploring rehearsal techniques
with actors/performers; developing mise en scene; tempo-rhythm.
- ability to apply directing skills to a substantial event;
- ability to analyse contemporary performance art within the discourses of gender and
- ability to apply theoretical paradigms to developed performance events;
- ability to analyse and document the director's contribution to the performance process.
