The Directors' Lab
The Directors' Lab is for emerging artists interested in directing
The Directors' Lab is a comprehensive mentorship programme led by Sam Scott. It is for emerging directors to learn and practice their craft, incorporating conversations with various industry professionals and allowing for practical experimentation of theories and techniques.
Directors' Lab participants are supported to attend theatre performances to engender their critical sense, and open up discussions around theatre practice.
Graduates are potentially offered work within the Massive Company programme. Scotty Cotter co-directed The Wholehearted 2016 and directed Chance to Ignite in 2017. Miriama McDowell co-directed The Island 2016 and was a co-writer for Sightings, 2018.
