Abstract

What is the role of a movement director in the American Theatre? Why is it vital for a movement vocabulary to be considered when creating theatre? This thesis analyzes the process of collaboration in educational and professional theatre settings. It attempts to show that through collaboration with a director of a piece of theatre, a movement director can help guide a theatrical event to a fully embodied performance that serves the text and fully forms a director’s aesthetic.
