The Directors Lab
The Directors' Lab is designed to nurture company members ready to venture into directing
One of Massive's newest initiatives, The Directors' Lab is designed to nurture company members ready to venture into directing. We pride ourselves in responding to the needs of our company members.
The Director's Lab was started in 2015. 2016 saw, for the first time, our emerging directors co-directing shows with Artistic Director, Sam Scott. From the five emerging directors who trained as part of The Directors' Lab in 2015, two were asked to co-direct Massive shows during 2016. They were Scotty Cotter (co-director of THE WHOLEHEARTED) and Miriama McDowell (co-director of THE ISLAND).
2017 brings together another three emerging directors, working alongside Sam to develop their directing skills.
This year also brought, for the first time, our emerging directors taking the lead. Scotty Cotter directed our new emerging artists show CHANCE TO IGNITE in July/August.
