The Director and Design
Study in Practice
From Beginner to Pro
Theatre Director must know the design aspects of the performance and develop its concept on the stage of pre-production. Today, at the educational institutions it is rare that students know how to develop a design concept for their performances, which thus leads to difficulties in communication with designers during the production
The importance of visual effects in performances influenced modern professional theatre directors to pay more attention to design as a tool for creating an atmosphere and style of the performance.
This course mostly focused on practical tasks for directors that brings better understand and technical skills in the basics of composition, stage plans, storyboarding, scale models atmosphere creation through the use of a particular design concept. The practice goes in hand with some theories, textual analysis, and recommended readings. Emphasis is placed on general play analysis, as well as the investigation of design principles from a director's perspective.
