11.21.08 : Looks like I have to get to MY textbooks, if I want to teach in Addis Ababa. Teatr Lul Academe
Ethiopian Theatre ? Summer Session in Ethiopia
First class for Ethiopians -- acting one with AAU ?
To get through the same scene and monologue on all three levels; BioMethod, Biomechanics and System. The different technologues, but also we can't get everything in the first round (Acting I)...

They are killing me, the textbooks!
Since I work the textbooks from the web, the web-version is bigger and the books will be supported by the web.
I want to have CDs to accompany the print copies. [Text-only Directories will be @ Ant Theatre and GeoAlaska]
The class-syllabus is enclosed (Appendix) in each webtextbook.
See listing for titles!
Make polls to see the reactions.
Should the organization of the textbooks rely on the class structure?
In order to get rid of the endless notes, I opened Research directory and will place the cuts there; the texts that do not belong to textbooks.
There are several stages ahead. First, I have to go over the printed copies -- and see what is missing.
Second, I have to try the new principle of narrative: Stanislavsky and Meyerhold (to see if this style, the dialogues, will work).
Third, a lot of work with the apparatus; dictionary, notes, index, bibliography.
I have to leave the class structure, including the homework section. Some files are big (chapters), some small -- must be combined together? Which ones to drop?
Time is another problem. I fear to send my proposals, because I do not know my year ahead.
SummaryI hope that you understand -- most likely I will never finish any of the books-in-progress.
QuestionsHow even to access the new ways of teaching? There is a definite disbalance between the hours I put into web and the return...
The structure (acts and scenes, not chapters), the characters (Master, Teacher) and the style of writing ("leadder") should hold all the textbooks together!

A. Overall goals--What do I want to know and be able to do upon completion of my program?
B. Specific learning goals--What are my specific objectives?
C. Sequence of learning activities and documentation--What learning activities are required for me to meet my goals?

2007 directing class
Aristotle didn't write "The Poetics" as textbook -- and look, we study it for over thousand years! That's the ticket.
See Theatre Biomechanics & Method2007 --
They (notes) are done online and I continue editing and writing; there are many errors and missing parts...
First, God created idiots.
That was just for practice.
Then He created school boards.
The textbooks online do not follow the actual class schedule, I try to make them self-contained, so anybody can use them without being in my class.
For example, this very directory is to organize as a web-book on Theatre Theory (not yet, not right away). Performance (acting), Directing, Drama Analysis (some semiotics)...
In short, I try to move in here everything that I do not require my students to know for tests and exams.
For updates come back during the summer (2003), the only time when I have time to do real writing.Even after two years of working on Biomechanics pages, the book isn't ready. How long will it take?
Venice Carnival 2002 & DJ 2003 The pages in "Theatre Theory" directory are supposed to be for my reflections (at least), but I am chasing my own shadow -- I have no time to reflect, I have no time even to stop. There are so many issues I need to address, but all I can do is to flesh out the content pages (classes). I can go back to "production notes" directories (the shows I did, "Don Juan" on the left). To sort out what belongs to students and what to my own system (something I have to think about). The nature of comedy, for example. Even how can I use Moliere in my classes is not clear (I have a master-file, a book, which is not online). It could be a wonderful case-study...
You can throw away the privilege of acting, but that would be such a shame. The tribe has elected you to tell its story. You are the shaman/healer, that's what the storyteller is, and I think it's important for actors to appreciate that. Too often actors think it's all about them, when in reality it's all about the audience being able to recognize themselves in you. The more you pull away from the public, the less power you have on screen. --Ben Kingsley
