Theatre Directing. Pedagogy
Certificate Program

Programme Overview

The Director is the person responsible for every aspect of a performance. They work closely with performers, composers, stage designers, costume designers, choreographers, and other members of the professional crew. However, directors can also teach, share their knowledge, organize workshops, and train others. We recommend this training program for those interested in these additional role.

We give an opportunity to learn directing through a variety of options, through a dynamic blend of InClass sessions, distant learning, workshops, and immediate application of gained knowledge. Students will be able to explore the numerous visual, dramatic, and technical challenges that face directors, as well as the challenges of teaching these concepts effectively. In addition to analyzing plays, directing, and working with performers, students are constantly involved in multidisciplinary interactions.

 

At our special Certificate Program, students learn from day one through hands-on experience. The development of skills is facilitated through practical teaching methods such as case studies and hands-on tasks, culminating in a successful independently developed explanation book that showcases the student's competence and professionalism
