Directing virtual theatre is new for many of us. Without being able to work with live people in a physical space, where do we start?

Well, let's start with what we know. Space. Composition. Visual storytelling.

The first half of this workshop will break down core elements of virtual theatre from a director's perspective in order to show how they correspond to known design, production, and composition elements that directors work with every day in live theatre. While the capabilities and limitations of virtual theatre are different, the fundamental tools are the same—we just have to shift how we think about and use them.

The second half of the workshop will address best practices for directors conducting virtual rehearsals and performances. It will cover strategies for communication, collaboration, and connection between actors/directors, actors/actors, and actors/audience.

*While this workshop is open to all, it is best suited to participants who have some previous directing experience.

NOTE: This is a ticketed event. Please visit our Eventbrite to purchase a ticket.
This is a TWO HOUR session + will begin at 3:00 pm ET on Wednesday, July 1st, 2020.
Its link to join will only be visible to those registered and signed in to their Sched account.
