The Master of Directing for Performance develops your in-depth knowledge and skills of directing and provides a framework to identify and reflect on your own practice as a director, performance-maker, collaborator and researcher. The program opens up a broad range of individual career pathways into contemporary performance practice through directing and performance making, practice-led research, and applied performance in intercultural and community engagement contexts.

The VCA offers a unique environment for you to develop an individual approach to directing live performances and creative leadership in an environment of interdisciplinary and intercultural learning. You will experience a wide range of collaborative opportunities and leadership roles with designers, actors, production teams, writers, dramaturgs and choreographers at the VCA, as well as a range of creative encounters with local, national and international artists, organisations and communities.

The program is delivered through lab-based workshops, seminars, lectures, self-directed exercises, tutorials, practical master classes, and national and international internships. It balances theory and practice across four semesters, to allow for progression from the intensively-taught, skills-based first year, to a more autonomous, project-orientated second year which culminates in an independent, practice-led research performance project or written dissertation. The program actively encourages intercultural and international training and research experiences through fieldwork in the second year of the course.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Develop specialist skills in directing for live performance, including rehearsal processes, dramaturgy, devising, composition and performance making
  • Build collaborative networks from within and beyond the VCA, and gain the knowledge and skills to build future national and international connections through industry placements and internships
  • Understand the interplay between theories and practices of performance direction
  • Learn practical and critical approaches to develop the future of Australian performing arts
  • Be able to creatively and imaginatively engage with textual, visual and performed sources and artworks
  • Become a flexible practitioner, able to work across artistic disciplines and multiple contexts of performance practice

In this one-year program you will encounter and explore dramaturgy beyond work with written texts and literary play scripts to encompass the contexts of dance, hybrid works, installation, community-based and performance art work. The program provides opportunities for you to develop your potential for artistic leadership and attain in-depth knowledge of dramaturgical thinking and practices.

The course is underpinned by a commitment to the pursuit of artistic excellence, collaboration and interdisciplinarity within established and emerging local, national and international dramaturgical practices. Students collaborate with other VCA postgraduate disciplines and engage with writers, directors, designers, choreographers, performance-makers and actors on a range of projects in an intensive training environment.

The course provides a balance of theory and practice across two semesters through laboratory-based workshops, seminars, lectures, self-directed exercises, tutorials, practical master classes and an independent project. An intensive first semester focuses on skills and research training, including a discrete subject where you will closely engage with the dramaturgical expertise of Melbourne’s diverse theatre industry. The second and final semester allows more independent practice and research, building reflective performance practitioners with a high level of research and practice skills.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Develop your potential for artistic leadership and gain in-depth knowledge of dramaturgical philosophies and practices
  • Creatively engage with textual, visual and performed artworks
  • Work collaboratively in interdisciplinary projects
  • Learn practical and critical approaches to develop the future of Australian performance culture
  • Build skills to work effectively in rehearsals with directors and creative teams
