Directors Lab North


lab 2014



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.

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 fourth year of the Lab.

Thanks to the Stratford Festival for assisting us with our field trip.

A huge thanks to the Ontario Arts Council for funding the Lab this year.
