THEA 0804: Theatre and Collaboration

The key to achieving a successful theatrical production is effective communication among all theatre artists during the process of development. Emphasis in this course is placed on collaboration, visualization, research, script interpretation, concept development, and performance. Students will be exposed to the work of notable artists in each field and explore theatre making from the vantage point of designers, dramaturges, playwrights, producers, critics, historians, directors and actors.

Over the first two weeks, students will gain a broad base of knowledge regarding the roles and responsibilities inherent in any collaborative theatre process. In the ensuing weeks students will explore a number of contemporary artists and devise their own collaborative projects. Students will become theatre makers.
