Directors Lab North


lab 2013



The Lab's third year, held May 30th - June 2nd, 2013 at the Tarragon Theatre in downtown Toronto, successfully united an international contingent of 25 directors from Canada, the US, Sweden, Italy and Ireland, with a mandate to explore ideas, share knowledge and inspire creativity for the theatre.

The 2013 Lab included an array of topics:
Masterclasses with Leah Cherniak, Richard Rose, Sky Gilbert and Judith Thompson.
An artist talk on Artistic Directorship with Brendan Healey.
A focus on physical theatre with Allyson McMackon.
The Dramaturgy/Director Relationship with Andrea Romaldi.
Shakespeare/Folio/New Play Development with Dean Gabourie.
Lab Members also participated in "Shared Sessions", a series of workshops where Lab members share knowledge and techniques with the Lab. Topics this year ranged from Fitzmaurice Technique to Chorus Work.

Directors Lab North is grateful to its supporters.

Special thanks to the Tarragon Theatre for their continued generous donation of their rehearsal spaces to house the third year of the Lab.
