What is Directors Lab West?
The Lab is a week-long summer intensive for stage directors and choreographers. Part conference, part workshop, part focused discussion, all theatre, all directing and all fun! The wellspring of the Lab is to provide a place for directors to meet and exchange ideas.
When is Directors Lab West?
May 23 to May 30, 2015 with events scheduled from 10 am until 10 pm that you won’t want to miss.
Where is Directors Lab West?
For the majority of the years of Directors Lab West, The Pasadena Playhouse in the historic California State Theatre has been and continues to be our dedicated and supportive partner, but we also hold sessions at a variety of theaters in and around Los Angeles.
Who can attend Directors Lab West?
By application only, the Lab is open to directors and choreographers committed to the art and creation of theatre. (Note: The Lab is not open to students or those planning to return to school. It is designed for emerging directors who are working professionals, who have finished their studies.
