Directors Lab North is a directing lab based in Toronto, Canada, geared toward professional practicing directors in all stages of their career from all across Canada and abroad.

Now in its 9th year, the Lab fosters a national and international exchange between a community of emerging, mid level and established career directors that need a safe space to explore and connect with like-minded peers. Participants are exposed to foreign techniques and practices, broadening their scope and repertoire. It is a series of workshops, readings, investigations, roundtable discussions, shared sessions and master classes led by master theatre practitioners.

Directors Lab North is now partnered with the Luminato Festival. We began our collaboration in 2017 with this innovative, and world-renowned festival, exposing our participants to international directors and other artists, to further broaden their scope and skills.


A maximum of 25 applicants will be admitted. The LAB is free of charge but if accepted a $25 registration fee will apply.


The 2019 Lab dates are June 10 – 16th. Application deadline is Monday, February 4th, 2019.
