Rehearsal to Presentation

Spring 2020

Taught By: Tea Alagic and Kathryn Rossetter

Section: A

CRN: 4022

Credits: 4

This course focuses on taking the preparation the students complete during Winter Break, as well as the text analysis skills developed in Directing Seminar 1, Contemporary Technique, and Story Analysis, to engage in a rehearsal process resulting in a presentation. Directors will work on a 30-minute cutting (no more than 3 scenes) of a selected play with the aim of a challenging and enriching process that leads to a well-defined presentation. These presentations will not be adaptations of the published play, but rather any three scenes from the work regardless of consecutive order. The actors will apply their technique and scene analysis skills to the rehearsal process, collaborating as professional artists with the first year directors. The goal of the course is for both directors and actors to apply their text analysis skills to a presentation of selected scenes. The final outcome of the course is applying their text analysis skills within a presentation. The focus for the director is on how they engage with their assigned actors. The focus for the actors is on how they prepare for and engage in a rehearsal process. Professor Rossetter and Professor Alagic will be observing in-class rehearsals. Professor Alagic and Professor Rossetter will be in separate rooms and rotate to all 3 rooms during the entire class period. Students will expect to be given feedback from their respective professor: (directors: Professor Alagic/actors: Professor Rossetter). Students who wish to enroll in a graduate theater course at The New School for Drama must be accepted into the graduate theater program as a full-time student. Co-taught by Kathryn Rossetter
