This is a 4-session class that focuses on the question:
“How to direct a scene? ”
Artistic director of Nine Years Theatre, Nelson Chia, conducts this master class. It aims to share knowledge that will help in understanding the elements that make up a scene, and skills needed in making a scene work. This is a largely hands-on class that requires participants to work with actors on the rehearsal floor in directing exercises.
In this round, selected scenes from established scripts will be used as materials for the directing exercises. Participants are expected to have read the selected plays before class. PDF versions of the scripts will be shared with confirmed participants, 2 weeks before class commences.
Target participants are aspiring directors and theatre practitioners with directing experience.
