Looking for Direction: Rethinking Theatre Directing Practices and Pedagogies in the 21st Century contains articles by 17 authors from all around the world. This book was published by University of the Arts Helsinki in collaboration with a network of North European directing programs – Alexandria Nova. It was designed by Vilmantas Žumbys.
The position of a director is a hot spot in theatre today. We need to confront the new questions of power and hierarchy in our work in a very concrete way, as well as the questions of representation and interpretation. How can we create shared meaning on stage when the metanarratives are losing their universality and the audiences interpret meaning more diversely than ever before?
