    About this workshop

    Explore techniques for building a creative and well-considered directorial interpretation and vision for a text. In this workshop series students will learn how to analyse and distil themes from the central action of the drama and build a world for the play relevant to their project.

    This directing workshop explores skills to analyse, imagine and communicate their vision. During the series students will be introduced to:

    • How to approach a new text and choose the play that is right for them
    • The process of breaking down a script to find themes and central action
    • Role of research, scene breakdowns and world-building
    • Tools available to a director or designer when creating a consistent and coherent interpretation of the text.

    This workshop is intended to help you create your directorial concept/vision and work towards applying skills to your chosen play from the list of prescribed texts through practical exploration of directing and designing techniques, guided by a Belvoir artist. Artists delivering this workshop will not be providing guidance on specifics of the HSC requirement. For information on assessment requirements for your project you should consult your teacher.
