ABOUT THE LAB

Directors Lab: Melbourne is an intensive creative laboratory for professional theatre directors from around Australia and the world, taking as its model the long-running Lincoln Centre Directors Lab.

Following the acclaim of the inaugural Directors Lab: Melbourne 2015, the program returns to Theatre Works in 2016 in partnership with Melbourne Theatre Company, Melbourne Festival and supported by the Ian Potter Foundation.

The dates for the 2016 Lab are 15 – 22 October. The Lab will run from 8am – 8pm over eight consecutive days.

The schedule includes masterclasses, dynamic conversations, investigations, creative explorations and facilitated discussion of shows attended as part of the Melbourne Festival. 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.
