Accepting Applications for CPT's Directing Devised Theatre Class

CPT's Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan will teach a class 11-week Directing Devised Theatre class for actors, playwrights, designers, and others who are interested in creating devised work. Class is limited and enrollment will be based on an application process. Application deadline is July 20, 2012.

Directing Devised Theatre will explore many aspects of directing and creating new works including:

--Montage
--Dynamic stage picture
--Working with rhythm
--Creating and working with "actions"
--Supporting actors' creative process

This 11-week class will meet on Saturdays from September 29, 2012 - December 8, 2012 (no class on Nov 24 for Thanksgiving holiday). The class will be held from 11am to 2pm. Students may only miss one class and must make up work for that class. This is a working classroom environment and students will be expected to cast, create and rehearse four scenes for in-class presentation. CPT space may be available to students for class work on a limited basis.

Though this class is focused on directing it is open to actors, playwrights, designers, and others who are interested in creating devised work. We are seeking a class with diverse backgrounds and skill sets. Class is limited and enrollment will be based on an application process.

The fee for the class is $750. CPT will accept up to 1/2 of this fee to be paid in "sweat-equity" volunteer work.
