Directors’ Lab

It can be pretty difficult to develop your directing skills without having to direct a whole show. We have an alternative.

Rumble Theatre’s Directors’ Lab is a series of in-studio workshops, rehearsals, investigations and roundtable discussions facilitated by a Master Director.

A carefully chosen cohort works with a Master Director who leads the way through a themed week-long workshop. It’s a chance for new directors to work with a veteran, learn a variety of approaches, and advance their career.

Each iteration has a theme, determined by the Master Director. For example, in 2020, Maiko Yamamoto (winner of the Siminovitch Prize), led a workshop entitled “Directing from the Inside > Out.” She focused on adapting autobiographical material and found texts into performance.

This is an unparalleled opportunity to learn by doing, and to clarify your own vision.
