This June, Directors Lab North is excited to celebrate the last 13 years with REDIRECT; a chance for the leadership and DLN alums to come together to reflect, regenerate and reinvigorate the Lab so that it can sustain and serve the community for another 13 years and beyond.
This year’s reinvention of the Lab is an important opportunity for the leadership team of Directors Lab North to continue to build partnerships with institutions across the country that can further cement DLN’s place as an integral part of Canada’s theatre ecology. We will not be accepting applications for the 2023 Lab. We will reopen applications in late 2023 for the 2024 Lab!
Now, for more info on this year’s Lab:
This year’s two day-long Lab intensives (one in person, one online) will continue to support the growth and development of directors as artists and cultivate a community of directors. They are part of a full week of activities aimed at evolving and visioning the future for Lab. We are excited to share time with past Labbies for part of the week to reconnect, while spending the remaining days to meet with artistic and institutional leaders to build relationships with creative partners, develop more sustainable models for running the Lab, and think through how Directors Lab North can continue to serve the individual Labbies and the performance ecology.
REDIRECT: THE LOCAL LAB
Past Labbies local to Toronto and surrounding areas are invited to join the Lab for one in person day at Tarragon Theatre on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023 from 10 AM to 10 PM (with appropriate breaks).
