DIRECTORS LAB

The Directors Lab is geared towards emerging directors looking to develop their craft. In partnership with Native Earth Performing Arts and Theatre Passe Muraille, participants will receive mentorship from a professional theatre company, participate in master classes with a professional director, and have their work showcased at the festival. We will accept two emerging directors to participate in three master classes with a professional director, Courtney Ch’ng Lancaster, where Courtney will give feedback on their work. These master classes will be tailored to the participant’s interests and are a chance for experimentation with new directorial approaches and practices.

The participants will each be partnered with one of Paprika’s partner companies: Native Earth Performing Arts or Theatre Passe Muraille.  The participant will work with members of the company to develop a mentorship schedule in order to learn about working in a professional institution.  Your work is shared in the Paprika Festival May 20-26, 2019 at Aki Studio (Daniels Spectrum).

The 2018/2019 Directors Lab Facilitator is Courtney Ch’ng Lancaster. To learn more about this year’s facilitators, click here!
