9780205397099: The Director as Collaborator

The Director as Collaborator teaches essential directing skills while emphasizing how directors and theatre productions benefit from collaboration. Good collaboration occurs when the director shares responsibility for the artistic creation with the entire production, including actors, designers, stage managers and technical staff. Leadership does not preclude collaboration; in theatre, these concepts can and should be complementary. Students will develop their abilities by directing short scenes and plays and by participating in group exercises.

About the Author:

A theater director, writer, and scholar, Robert Knopf is the author of two books, "The Theater and Cinema of Buster Keaton" (Princeton) and "The Director as Collaborator" (Focal Press). For Yale University Press, he edited "Theater and Film" and co-edited two critical anthologies of avant-garde plays and essays. He has directed plays at Circle-in-the-Square Downtown, Cherry Lane Studio, Paradise Factory, Circle Rep Lab, and New York's historic Town Hall, as well as for NPR Playhouse. He teaches acting, directing, and script analysis at University at Buffalo/SUNY, where he is a full professor.

Review:

 “This is a well-thought-out book that has a new and exciting approach to the field of theater directing. The concept of collaboration is an important (and oft-ignored) part of the directing process. There are stunning nuggets of wisdom within this text that drive the text forward ― it’s the director’s job to be an idealist, and this work chooses to show how this idealism can be fore-grounded and made a significant part of the process.”
―Christopher Berchild, Indiana State University

“This is a very readable book, written in an easy, conversational style using personal experiences and well-defined examples. I think that this is an excellent text for beginning directors of any age. Because of his teaching and directing style, one feels that the author is sitting across the production table having a conversation with a group of friends.”
―Margaret Brennan, Harrisburg Area Community College
