Women's Directing Intensive

Program Overview
We are proud to offer this three-day master class for women interested in directing to learn from one of North America’s best. According to the recent Equity in Theatre study, there is a correspondence between women artistic directors and women directors, meaning that encouraging and increasing women’s representation in one area will positively affect other areas. 

What does the program offer?
Participants in this master class will be guided in an exploration of one classical play and one contemporary work written by a woman. 

Participants will have the opportunity to work with director, writer, and producer Carey Perloff. She has served as Artistic Director of the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco since 1992, and has worked internationally with some of the finest theatre artists in the world.

Topics will include: how to prepare a rehearsal, how to break down a text, and how to lead a rehearsal process that is exploratory and alive. The class will also address the issue of authority versus collaboration, which is often paramount for women directors: women must find their own voices and their own method of setting up parameters in the room in a way that feels true to them but allows them to shape the work effectively so that their own visions can be realized.

Who should apply?
This program is intended for theatre artists with a strong interest in directing who identify as women in a way that’s significant to them. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and we welcome cis, trans, genderqueer, and non-binary applicants.

This master class is presented by Theatre Alberta, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, and Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre as part of Theatre Alberta’s Workshops by Request: Rocky Mountain Series.
