Directing my Career with Cora Bissett

CORA BISSETT BREAKS DOWN KEY LESSONS SHE LEARNED ON HER WAY TO BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL DIRECTOR

We had the pleasure of being joined by award-winning Director Cora Bissett, who we caught up with whilst she was leading our Directing Fundamentals day at the end of last month. Cora took participants through some of her processes when approaching a new text and shared some tips on facilitating a rehearsal space.

During the break we sat down with Cora to film the interview below, chatting about what it meant to create a supportive rehearsal environment, as well as how to manage collaborations and celebrate your successes. Check it out if you’re an emerging or early-career director, or thinking of adding a directorial string to your bow. This video may give you the insights and confidence to approach your next project!

You can download a transcript of the dialogue within the video here.
