In traditional pantomime the baddie always comes on stage left and the good fairy stage right. Why? This was the question that started director Tom Wright on a five year journey, aided by five weeks of workshops with directors on the Young Vic main stage: a study of composition in film, photography and painting and a bit of Laban for good measure exploring the significance of stage blocking and the processes you can use to arrive there. What is the significance of movement on stage? Where should you put the door? How can directors, actors and designers work together to create the most meaningful images and movement on stage? Rather than a set of rules, Tom has developed an approach which will enable you to make your own decisions and train your eye to be more sensitive to the meaning of space.
