Directing: or, The Big Questions That Will Never Be Answered (with Anya Saffir)

This week Daniel and Monty sit down with director, writer, and acting teacher Anya Saffir. Anya taught Daniel and Monty during their undergraduate time in the Atlantic Conservatory program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Since then, she has directed around the world from Mexico City to the Moscow Art Theatre. To learn more, check out her website anyasaffir.com.Topics include:Anya’s unexpected and life-changing experience teaching and now directing in Mexico CityWhat it is about directing the classics that appeals to Anya more than directing new workThe unique school of philosophy at the University of Wittenberg during Shakespeare’s timeThe power of writing that brings artists and audience members into contact with core human questions (or “the vein of humanity” or “the great mysteries”) without seeking to answer them Freud’s concept of “Religiosity”Looking at plays that confront you with the big existential questions as their own form of religious textsHow working on plays that explore the big questions can help artists when they reach those moments in their own lives and leave them a little wiser and a little bit more peacefulThe debate between Tuzenbach and Vershinin in The Three Sisters on whether humanity moves forward or essentially stays the same as it advances, and what that implies for people who seek happiness in the present moment or sacrifice for future generations.Daniel Kemper as the next Teri GrossChekhov’s principle value of Freedom and how that demands a spontaneity and freedom where every moment changes from one performance to anotherHow to direct “that which only wants to be free,” or how Anya translated the above struggle into a new type of rehearsal process to rigorously learn the world and then establish an environment for playThe glory of the traverse (or “tennis court”) audience arrangementThe power of isolating the human voice and the fear of having to be spontaneous in an age where so much communication can be written and rewrittenMirror Neurons and their implications in an age where many people spend more time with technology than other human beingsThe term “Master Teacher” The power of putting in the hoursConfidence as a biproduct of preparing, showing up, and doing the workThe power of coming into the first rehearsal with the lines already learned deep in your bonesFlow State, or Optimal Performance StateThe tremendous pressure on directors to “make their mark” and how it often leads to productions that smell of the director’s own ego needs rather than the “necessary question of the play” or the playwright’s intent.Music is by Kara Arena, Master of Music for Rude Grooms.
