Pathways Directors 2019

Following Extant’s successful Pathways 2018 training that supported eight visually impaired actors to develop their skills and experience towards a professional career in theatre and the creative arts, we are excited to launch Pathways Directors 2019 training for visually impaired directors and theatre-makers, in association with the Young Vic theatre in London.

With initial workshops taking place in November 2019, the three-day introduction to the skills and career path of a director will also be followed up with further opportunities in 2020.

The three days will include a series of workshops delivered by experienced visually impaired and sighted practitioners, led by directors from Extant and the Young Vic theatre. The sessions will cover an introduction to:

·        running a rehearsal room

·        directing from page to stage

·        physical approaches to directing from a visually impaired perspective: including integrated access when starting to create a production
