...All languages of stage can be placed into three categories. This gives us the "how."
a. visual means
b. verbal (includes aural) means
c. kinesthetic means
SPECTACLE is the last principle in Aristotle's Poetics, defining the drama' essence. Show, we say. Or - film!
Is it structural or textural principle? "Form" or "meaning"?
The process: from the text to the show: HamletDreams, secret life of the live show.
Tasks and production periods: pre-production and production (see Film Production)
Visualization of Drama (use UAF shows). Conflict, ideas (meaning) --> forms.
Director's Mind and Eye: vision!
Why do I need to stage this show TODAY? History and our present. Our problem and eternal issues. Personal (why this is important? maybe most important). Social frame of references.
Concept: idea of interpretation (new meaning). Director as a first spectator.
Director and Actors, Actors and Text. Cast Idea.
Problems as creative challenges. Artistic Choices: Right and Wrong. Strong choices. "No-choice choice" = mis-directing.
Idea > Concept > Text > Design > Actors > SpectacleThe Product
