Festival 2014 Adjudicator's Workshop

Director's Vision, with Bea Quarrie

Friday, May 16
1:30pm to 3:30pm

Bea QuarrieWhat does artistic vision mean? How does one find  the thrust of a play? How does a director stay true to the integrity of a script? What is "scenic truth"? "Aesthetic integrity"?

Looking at the concrete challenges posed by four diverse plays (Vimy by Vern Thiessen, Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen, Having Hope at Home by David S. Craig, and Shrek, the Musical, book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire), this session will examine the process by which the director's vision may be most fully explored.  Participants should be familiar with at least one of the scripts.
