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, participate in masterclasses with a professional director, and have their work showcased at the festival. The participants are paired with mentors in order to learn about directing productions for professional institutions and companies.
