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.
