The Lab's fifth year, held June 3rd - 7th, 2015 at the Tarragon Theatre in downtown Toronto, successfully united an international contingent of 27 directors from Canada, the USA and England, with a mandate to explore ideas, share knowledge and inspire creativity for the theatre.
The 2015 Lab included an array of topics:
Shakespeare with Jeanette Lambermont-Morey.
Playwrights Project with Erin Shieds.
Movement with Jane Johansen.
Artistic Direction with Jackie Maxwell and Eda Holmes.
Revivals session with Peter Hinton.
Site-Specific with Mitchell Cushman and Julie Tepperman.
New Play Development with Richard Rose and Andrea Romaldi.
Physical theatre with Allyson McMackon.
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 Devising to Viewpoints. We also took a field trip to the Shaw Festival to see Pygmalion.
