Guide for Students & Guest Artists
This guide is not meant to restrict or confine the artistic process. It is not a formula or recipe. This document contains general guidelines intended to lay a foundation. It is a starting point for the creation and modification necessary to adapt to each unique theatre production. By its very nature, theatre is in constant metamorphosis. There is no perfect process for creating art--each piece must be evaluated individually to achieve the best results. The guidelines presented are intended to streamline and empower creativity, not inhibit it. When approaching a new piece, it is important to remember that there are certain principles that stand above arbitrary rules and regulations—respect for one another, love of discovery, and the willingness to lose oneself in the creation of beauty.
