Directors Lab: Melbourne is an intensive creative laboratory for professional theatre directors from Australia and around the world, taking its model from the long-running Lincoln Center Directors Lab. Following its successful inaugural delivery in 2015, and a fantastic follow-up year in 2016, Directors Lab: Melbourne returns for the third time in 2017; running in tandem and in partnership with Melbourne Festival and supported by The Ian Potter Foundation.

The dates for the 2017 Lab are October 15  22. The schedule includes: masterclasses, dynamic conversations, investigations, creative explorations and facilitated discussions following various Melbourne Festival shows attended by the participants. Directors will be actively involved as participants and presenters; sharing their skills, methodologies and techniques with a community of national and international directors.

This opportunity is open to professional theatre directors and is without charge. For more insight into the Lab, check out our short video from last year’s lab. To get in touch, email directorslab@theatreworks.org.au
