Directors Lab West Connects

Directors Lab West is proud to present DIRECTORS LAB WEST CONNECTS, an 8-day series of live-streamed conversations and Q&As crafted for and by theater directors and choreographers that will reflect upon, explore, and inspire paths forward in the transformed and transforming nature of live theater. Curated to reflect a wide range of topics, each session will feature speakers sharing their unique perspectives for 30 minutes, followed by a live moderated 15-minute Q&A.

Taking advantage of global possibilities to connect through online platforms and move our dialogue forward together, DIRECTORS LAB WEST CONNECTS will be live streaming daily at 11 a.m. PDT May 23 through 30, 2020 on howlround.tv and the Directors Lab West Facebook page, where viewers can engage with peers and ask questions in the chat. Each session will be archived on HowlRound and Directors Lab West’s websites.

Viewers can learn more and RSVP for these conversations and submit questions ahead of time at directorslabwest.com.

Directors Lab West Connects is produced by Che’Rae Adams, Douglas Clayton, Ernest Figueroa, Martin Jago, Cindy Marie Jenkins, Randee Trabitz, and Diana Wyenn, with additional support from Emily Claeys and Reena Dutt
