Presented in partnership with Melbourne Festival.
Inspired by the Lincoln Center model, Directors Lab: Melbourne is an eight-day creative laboratory held in collaboration with Melbourne Festival.
The program accepts 30 directors from across Australia and the world, to participate in eight days of masterclasses, performance and rigorous debate with leading national and international theatre makers.
In 2016, over 65 artists were engaged in the Lab, with participating directors attending from across Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Spain. Guest directors have included Peter Sellars (US), Moisés Kaufman (US), Robert Lepage (Canada) and Gob Squad (Berlin).
PROGRAM DATES: 15 – 22 OCTOBER 2017
Applications are now closed. Meet the 2017 participating directors.
The 2017 Directors Lab is supported by The Ian Potter Foundation.
