Session Title:

(708) Directing Program Pre-Conference - Staging Spectacle via Spectacular Collaborations

Focus Group:

Directing Program

Description

It takes many minds to create spectacle on stage - whether that be spectacle with an unlimited budget or spectacle of the imagination. This Pre-Conference, sponsored by the Directing Program, encourages conversations between directors, designers, and other collaborators about working methods of collaboration, specifically related to staging the spectacular world of the play. In addition to discussing these "spectacular collaborations," participants will dive deeply into issues related to collaborating to create such spectacles. What are best practices for coming together to create spectacle on stage? What issues face us as directors and collaborators when staging spectacle?
