The Lab’s fifth year, held June 3rd – 7th, 2015 at the Tarragon Theatre in downtown Toronto, successfully united an international contingent of 27 directors from Canada, the USA and England, with a mandate to explore ideas, share knowledge and inspire creativity for the theatre.

Lab Members also participated in “Shared Sessions”, a series of workshops where Lab members share knowledge and techniques with the Lab. Topics this year ranged from Devising to Viewpoints. We also took a field trip to the Shaw Festival to see Pygmalion.
