Abstract
My study investigates past, present, and future forms of dramatic stage direction, with special attention given to visual forms of language and to the tension between determinate and indeterminate forms of notation. An historical section constructs a selective history of stage direction with the goal of expanding our conception of what constitutes stage direction. A contemporary section analyzes new and emerging forms of direction from a dialectical perspective. Introductory and closing sections survey the current climate and make projections about the future.
