Directing

Recognize and understand the steps of the directing process from play selection to production.  Direct (effectively communicate directorial choices to a small ensemble) by organizing and conducting rehearsals for improvised and scripted scenes, and expand skills necessary to direct formal and informal productions.  Use dramatic elements to stage a play.  Use rehearsal time effectively to brainstorm, experiment, plan, and rehearse.  Demonstrate the use of blocking stage areas, levels, and actor's position (e.g., full front, quarter, profile, and full back) in dramatic scenes.  Discern characters' perceived thought processes during dramatic scenes.  Recognize ways to "physicalize" characters' thought processes.  Know the responsibilities of the director in all aspects of planning, such as visual and aural effects, etc.  Justify selections of text, interpretation, and visual and aural artistic choices.  Demonstrate acceptable methods of delivering constructive criticism.  Identify and research cultural, historical and symbolic clues in dramatic texts and evaluate the validity and practicality of the information to assist in making artistic choices for informal and formal productions.  Plan and implement auditions, rehearsals, and production meetings to achieve desired production goals.  Exhibit interpersonal skills necessary to lead a cast and crew to develop an aesthetically unified production concept.
