Managing Art Vision  Most directors strive to communicate clearly with all designers and make certain that the separate contributions result in a unified work of art  An Auteur is a director who operates with almost total control Collaborating with the playwright  A personal relationship with the playwright can be forged that evolves trust and mutual respect for the text, which is the artistic child of the dramatist  If the playwright has nothing to do with the production it is more common for directors to create radical concepts when interpreting the play Collaborating with Designers  The director begins meeting with designers well before casting or rehearsals  They share interpretation, ideas, images  The directors responsibility is to inspire them to make their own artistic contribution while shaping all of the work into a single, unified concept Collaborating with Actors  The director is a collaborator, steers the ship, work with like minded people that understand the concept.  Actor wants to please the director and help tell the story The Rehearsal Process  Typical rehearsal period is 4-5 weeks  The director decides how to use this rehearsal period, and each show may be somewhat different depending on the demands of the production  Table work/analysis-sit at table and read script together and talk about what's happening  Exploration-get up and move to figure out how  Blocking-stage directions  Working-making sure everything works  Run through sections-done through acts or scenes  Run through show- "stumble through"  Tech rehearsals (add lights, set, and sound elements)- spectacle  Dress rehearsals (add costumes)-costume changes  Full dress (every prop, costume, set piece is used)  Opening Night The artistic director  Seasoned veterans  Head of an entire producing organization  The artistic director is primarily responsible for the artistic life of the theatre  Decision makers of the company; what plays will be done; what directors, designers to bring in.  Thinks about the whole season of theatrical work.  Is there variety?  Is the theatre serving its constituency well?  Are the productions meeting the artistic goals of the theatre?  How are we impacting our community? The art of acting • Imitating and representing specific or imaginary human beings and their actions through intellectual, psychological, and emotional exploration. Masks • Used during Greek and Roman times. • Also used during the Italian Renaissance- commedia dell'arte - Actors were expansive, grotesque, highly physical and full of clowning. • Also used for medieval religions cycle plays to represent devils. • The mask is a powerful tool, used to represent a fixed moment, a psychological motif, or an emotional state • Masks used today- lion king What the what? Ø All actors were male until the Golden Age in Spain (1587) Ø Greek "mimes" were held in low regard socially and categorized with prostitutes. Ø During Shakespeare's heyday, all roles were played by men. Ø Women were able to take the stage in 1660 during the English Restoration period. Ø Although women were allowed on stage, they were regarded as morally suspect and socially unacceptable Breeches Roles Ø Gender switching roles- women played a male or female character disguised as a male. Ø Known today as cross-dressing Ø Challenges actors of both genders to fool the audience into accepting the transformation; or use the gender switch to comment on gender issues while maintaining recognition of their real sex.
