Abstract: In most large-scale theatre productions from Quebec, the assistant director is always present and manages all the logistics of the rehearsals while offering constant support to the members of the team. Although this role is extremely important for most established theatre company in Quebec, the profession of assistance remains misunderstood and mysterious for the theatrical succession and for many artists. In fact, technical training, conservatories and university theatrical formations only scratch the surface of the subject in the classroom, and any written or even video information on Quebec's professional practice is insufficient. This dissertation is dedicated to documenting the profession through interviews with professional assistants in Quebec, internship observation and bibliographical references on similar trades practiced in the United States, England and other artistic community such as cinema and dance. It turns out that the assistant director is an essential job for any production, a strong support for creation and a valuable ally for each member of the team. This thesis is also devoted to documenting the notation and its various systems, a task at the heart of the assistant's work and the only one universally recognized in Quebec. The goal is to feed from different sources, different methods to offer a complete toolbox to future assistants and new tips to the most experienced. Since there is currently no real training on the job, this dissertation aims to be a guide to understand the foundations of the profession, and to put forward some ideas for improving the practice. To that extent, this research has also devoted itself to the development of a first draft of a dramaturgical notation tool that can help the blocking of any project and facilitate communication with each sector of the creation. This tool was designed and tested according to the very complex needs of Dreamland, creation of Théâtre Rude Ingénierie.
