¿Qué aprenderé?

The Directing Program at the University of Washington School of Drama is a three year intensive, conservatory program designed to prepare students for successful entry into the professional theatre. Our program is based on the premise that the best training for directors is to direct under the guidance of several master teachers.

The classes and training include work in a range of types and styles of dramatic work including realistic, nonrealistic, classical and contemporary plays. The overall aim of the program is to provide students with the practical skills necessary to reveal, clearly and fully, the potential of any given text. By the time they finish their degree we expect them to be effective collaborators with actors and designers. We also strive to enable our students to expand their artistic ideas in a way that provides them with a basis for a life-long determination to fulfill and effectively reveal their artistic ideas.

Program of Study

In order to optimize contact with all of our performance faculty the following courses are the required core for each quarter for the first two years:

  • Directing Lab
  • Directing Seminar
  • Design Studio
  • Acting Process
  • Physical Training
  • Production

Directing Lab is where one of the Directing faculty works with directing students and actors two to three times per week. Our assumption is that graduate actors, designers and directors gain a great deal by doing studio work together as if in rehearsal, supervised by qualified master teachers. Since interaction between directors, actors and designers is a crucial dynamic of a director's professional career, the faculty consider it important to provide a creative crucible, in a lab setting, for the necessary skills and sensibilities to develop.

Directing Seminar provides the opportunity to examine upcoming and current student-directed productions and then review the results. Additionally text analysis, staging ideas, adaptations, new scripts, and collaboration with other specialists are covered.

Acting Process, which when time allows includes student-directors, includes Stanislavski, action theory, Shakespeare, Chekhov and contemporary e focus of acting process classes is to develop processes in both acting and directing students which they can then apply to a wide variety of scripts and situations.

Suzuki based physical training and Viewpoints are taken by all of the graduate acting and directing students every quarter. The work is a lab for addressing physical foundations of acting process and the full involvement of the body in space. It includes elements of tempo, concentration, power, and the relationship of real and imagined elements on the stage. We have found that directors develop useful diagnostic skills through physical experience and active observation of the physical training.
