On Directing: Interviews with Directors Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The profession of directing is barely a century old. On Directing considers the position of the director in theater and performance today. What is a director? How do they begin work on a play or performance? What methods are used in rehearsal? Is the director an enabler, a collaborator or dictator? As we enter the new millennium, is the very concept of directing under increasing threat from changes in thinking and practice? The full diversity of today's approaches to directing are explored through a series of interviews with leading contemporary practitioners. On Directing is a landmark book about the director's craft.

Book News Annotation:

Interviews with 21 contemporary theater directors consider the position of the director in theater and performance today, and delve into questions surrounding the director's role, methods for rehearsal, directing styles, and threats to the concept of directing. Lacks a subject index. The editors are affiliated with Lancaster University and York University.
