Directors Lab North

DLN 2011

Our inaugural lab, held June 3rd-5th, 2011 at the Tarragon Theatre in downtown Toronto was a great success. We had 25 directors from all over Canada, the US and Ireland come together for an amazing 3 days of shared ideas, passions and inspiration.

Special thanks to Shelly Meichenbaum our weekend volunteer, and our dedicated Steering Committee Stephanie Graham, Andrew Lamb and Rupal Shah (Image 1).

Our first panel, on "Dramaturg, Playwright and Director Relationships," was Nina Lee-Aquino, Daniel Brooks, Anne Cattaneo, Judith Thompson & Andrea Romaldi (Image 2).

We also had masterclasses with Linda Griffiths (Image 3), Richard Rose (Image 4), and Micheline Chevrier (Image 5).

Our final panel on "Theatre & Aesthetics," was with Soheil Parsa and Michael Wheeler (Image 6).

We also had our fellow lab members, Rod Ceballos, Jeannette Lambermont-Morey, SG Lee, Jack Grinhaus, Nick Crisafulli & Patrick Hughes share their own knowledge and techniques during their "Shared Sessions." Topics ranged from Arthur Miller to Viewpoints (Images 7-9).

Directors Lab North is grateful to its supporters.

Special thank you to Tarragon Theatre for their generous donation of their rehearsal spaces to house this year's inaugural Lab.
