The Lab's fourth year, held June 4th - 8th, 2014 at the Tarragon Theatre in downtown Toronto, successfully united an international contingent of 25 directors from Canada, the USA, Sweden, Australia and Ireland, with a mandate to explore ideas, share knowledge and inspire creativity for the theatre.
The 2014 Lab included an array of topics:
Building Ensemble Masterclass with Jillian Keily.
Using the script "Little One," directors collaborated with each other to present their vision and ideas to playwright Hannah Moscovitch, followed by a Q & A.
New Play Development with Richard Rose and Andrea Romaldi.
An artist talk on Artistic Directorship with Dennis Garnhum.
A focus on physical theatre with Allyson McMackon.
An artist talk on his production of A Midsummer's Night Dream with Chris Abraham.
Directing workshop with Ross Manson.
Producing panel with Derrick Chua, Julie Tepperman and Aaron Willis.
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 Moment Work to Viewpoints. We also took a field trip to the Stratford Festival to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
