eSe Taller/eSe Workshop: Director's Lab by Daniel Jáquez
Under the guidance of director/choreographer Daniel Jáquez, emerging and intermediate level directors will have a chance to hone their skills in a safe environment.

Are you tired of waiting for a chance to work on your craft?  Are you looking for an forum to show your peers what you are working on?  Are there actors in Seattle you have been wanting to work with?  Is there a play or performance you have been wanting to delve into?  This is an opportunity to work on the staging of a play or scene you have in mind with actors of your choice.

Directors will bring in 5 - 8 minutes of material previously rehearsed.  If there is text, actors must be off book.  2 - 3 person scenes maximum. No self-direction.

Design elements must be used including lights and music (during or between scenes).  eSe Teatro will provide a CD player, a clip light with a few basic gel colors, chairs and a table.  Actors can bring in anything they feel is necessary to tell the story of the scene as they see it.

In this Lab setting renowned director Daniel Jáquez will help you evaluate your work in terms of communication with actors, focus, artistic intent, point of view and other key directorial elements.  In that process of working on your feet, changes will be made and incorporated into the work.  You might be asked to consider spacing, more interesting staging and other creative and aesthetic solutions. All directors will present their work at least one day.  Their actors must be present.

Directors must send the script to Daniel Jaquez via at least one week prior.  This gives Daniel a chance to study each director's script.

Two sessions:  May 9th  7-10pm,  May 11th 11am - 2pm

Fee:  $75 (per registered Director)

Class Size:  8 Directors
