Hello friends…   I will be teaching two workshops, “The Director’s Notebook: Working with Actors” and “Devising Performance: Conceptualization, Composition & Creation” as part of the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival at Towson University.  This workshop is open to both students and faculty.  For more information on the Festival, please visit kcactf2.org .

The Director’s Notebook: Working with Actors

Sunday, January 13th  12:45-2:45p    Towson University    Center for the Arts   Room 3055

This workshop invites directors- experienced, aspiring or curious- as well as actors to explore the director-actor relationship in rehearsal. Through exercises and dialogue, we will investigate the expectations and mechanics of directing the actor, sustaining energy and creativity during the process and navigating the truthful performance.

Devising Performance: Conceptualization, Composition & Creation

This workshop is intended as an introduction to the art of ensemble theatre making. Participants are invited to explore the collaborative process of devising theatre through group composition exercises. The workshop is open to participants of any area of discipline- visual mediums/design, performance, directing.
