Rumble Theatre invites applications from emerging directors to participate in the sixth installment of Directorsʼ Lab, a series of in-studio workshops, rehearsals, investigations and roundtable discussions facilitated by a Master Director. This yearʼs Lab will be facilitated by Canadian director Weyni Mengesha and will be held February 27 – March 3, 2018 at Progress Lab 1422 (PL1422) in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Directorsʼ Lab is a workshop for emerging directors who want to get rigorous with the foundations of their craft, unhindered by production and scenographic considerations. Using an established text as a working model, the Lab will focus on the director’s preparation process, early stages of rehearsal and assessment and critique of the work. Over five days, participants will discuss principles of directing, examine and analyze a text, rehearse scenes with an ensemble of actors and reflect on the processes.  (more…)
