The Directors Lab is geared towards emerging directors looking to develop their craft. Participants receive mentorship from a professional theatre company and participate in masterclasses with professional directors which are tailored to their interests to allow for experimentation with new directorial approaches and practices.

This year, we encouraged participants to explore work that can be encountered outdoor, one-on-one, or by small audiences.
