About the Directing Festival

For the Advanced Directing course of the Bachelor of Arts degree program in Theater Arts, students are challenged to explore, choose, and apply theater methodologies in order to embody their vision of a play. Experimenting with new forms and ideas, organizing and presenting a play, collaborating and solving issues, prepares students for a professional career.

The festival is organized by the students of the Advanced Directing course to present their projects/performances. All four works are based on theatrical texts that the four directors have selected and used differently. Part of their work was to create a performance within a 30-minute time frame.
