Directing Masterclass: Exeter Northcott Futures
Working with actors, designers, creators and collaborators. As a director your primary job is to communicate vision and lead the charge in bringing that vision to life. In this practical masterclass, you will explore different styles of direction, practical rehearsal room exercises and also have space to explore your own unique directing journey.
This practical workshop is led by Katie Villa and will have a focus on directing devised work and new writing. Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in.
