Alexandria Nova seminar: Time, temporality and eternity in the art of directing
Online seminar Sat 13 – Sun 14 march 2021.
Working with time – observing, sensing, manipulating and sharing it – is an essential part of the art of the director. The director works with time in the rehearsals, leading processes that build up during weeks, months and years. It is the responsibility of the director to “be contemporary”, that is to understand what meanings are present in a specific time and context. The director manipulates time in the performance with rhythm, structure and composition of time. Performance time is also a special kind of time that points to the lived past, and over time and space into eternity, as well as to the future. The transient now -moment that can be shared in theatre with the audience is at the core of the director´s work. On the other hand, theatre is a vanishing art form, the moments of theatre disappear as do our lives.
In this online seminar we will discuss time, temporality and eternity in theatre from many different angles.
Welcome to share and discuss time together with other directors and theater makers!
Registration is open!
