Freedom from control
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis examines my directing and leaderships tactics during my time as an MFA in Directing candidate at the University of Texas at Austin and while leading three productions: The Bigot (William Glick), Dry Land (Ruby Rae Spiegel) and ENRON (Lucy Prebble). I will chart my evolving leadership practices and discuss how tactics that fit the masculine/feminine, powerful/powerless and control/freedom binaries are from a dated and male-coded hierarchical directing practice. This document envisions a new way of directing that moves from power to authentic authority and from being in control to being in charge.
