10 – 18 October, 2015
Since 1995, the Lincoln Center Theater’s Directors Lab has been nurturing the development of theatre directors from across the world. In an Australian first, Melbourne’s visionary independent theatre venue and long time Festival partner Theatre Works have developed and will facilitate the inaugural Directors Lab: Melbourne to be held during Melbourne Festival.
Like its New York counterpart, Directors Lab: Melbourne will enable professional directors to take part in an intensive creative laboratory. Participating directors will share their skills, methodologies and learnings within a community of peers through masterclasses, workshops, and explorations.
While this exciting development opportunity is available exclusively to industry professionals, audiences are invited to join creator of the Lincoln Center Directors Lab, Anne Cattaneo and Artistic Director of New York’s PS122 Vallejo Gantner as they discuss the origins, dynamics and future of the arts landscape in New York during Melbourne Festival’s Artists in Conversation program.
