Directing Dirty - a Hands-On Approach to Story-Crafting
Friday Nov 15th 10:00-14:00 at Bikurei Haitim, TLV
About the Workshop:
In this workshop you will learn how to get your hands dirty in the art of stage directing. Directing is the ultimate form of story-crafting: taking a play/musical from ground zero to a fully formed show.
This workshop will go over the essentials for stage directing:
- What to look for when reading a script
- Aspects of theatre to consider for optimal performance (lighting, sound design, props)
- How to work with actors to craft your story through them
- Creative ways to approach staging, without building a 3-floor set
- And much more!
But this isn't some boring lecture. This is a hands-on approach to a hands-on field. You'll be discussing an actual script, practice staging, and work on your directing skills in real time with living, breathing actors!
This is a perfect workshop if you've always wanted to try stage directing or if you've done it before and felt a little lost.
*NOTE: This is a workshop for stage directing, focusing on working with plays and musicals. This workshop does not cover directing for film
