DIRECTING
“There is no definitive originary meaning, since what the "original"
performance meant will itself have been fragmented, and
experienced in many different ways” Michael Shanks
Theatre/Archaeology
“Every good play has a basic “will
she or won’t she…,” an essential
question about the central
character(s) that keeps the
audience interested, a question
around which all the action
revolves. Think of Shakespeare’s
Hamlet: Will the prince avenge his
father’s murder? Ibsen’s A Doll’s
House:Will Nora keep her secret
from Torvald?
As the Director, you must
understand what primarily keeps
the audience interested in the
ongoing action.” Frank Hauser:
Notes on Directing
“To be a director you have to be
in complete control of the set,
complete control of the
surroundings, and very aware of
what's going on, what's being used
and what's not being used... It's
insanity. To be an actor you have
to be, in a sense, out of
control.” Johnny Depp
SENIOR DRAMA
Aldridge State High School
YEAR 11 – SEMESTER 1, TERM 2
Task:
You are required to select an extract from an Australian Realist playtext and direct peer actors. You need to read the play in its entirety
to fully understand and envision the play on the stage. You will then need to select an extract (scene) that will enable you to show your
skills in the management and manipulation of the elements of drama, whilst highlighting the conventions of Realism. This task will
consist of a written Director’s Folio, and a live four – six minute directing presentation.
On the day of your assessment you will practically demonstrate your directorial vision. The teacher will select your actors to help
demonstrate this vision. Any special staging, props or costumes required to show your directional intentions, will need to be provided by
you.
You can choose from:
Fly in Fly out
Blackrock

AND a neatly presented portfolio style version required)
3. A neatly presented Stage Diagram (a birds eye view of the stage space, with clear indications of significant stage objects) inclusive
with any props or costumes required.
Task B – Directorial Workshop – Performance as a director (4-6 minutes)
1. You will direct the actors in your selected scene, providing them with explicit directions about how to perform, and your intended
blocking. Your actors will have 10 – 15 minutes to read the script on their own before they receive your direction, where they will work
