Inspired by the Lincoln Center model, Directors Lab: Melbourne is a free eight-day creative laboratory held in collaboration with Melbourne Festival.
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.
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).
