This course is an intermediate level BFA course for both actors and directors, and explores the extraordinary potential of the actor/director collaborative partnership. This course is guided by the belief that successful directing requires an understanding of and passion for the work of the actor, and that successful acting is enabled and empowered by an understanding of and collaboration with the work of the director. Through a series of modules during which students will develop scene work from different contemporary plays in different collaborative teams, this course will examine collaborative techniques and approaches to partnership that exist at each stage in the theatrical production process. Additionally, this course may invite students to deepen their understanding of their collaborators' work by at times occupying the role of their collaborator (with actors functioning as directors and directors functioning as actors).
