About the Book:

The Directors Lab: Techniques, Methods, and Conversations About All Things Theatre is a manual created and edited by Evan Tsitsias. It is perfect for directors, actors, designers or anyone interested in theatre creation.

Based on his experiences running the Directors Lab North in Toronto and attending the Lincoln Center Directors Lab and the Chicago Lab, Evan Tsitsias has amassed an extensive amount of advice, examples, and notes that prove essential reading for theatre creators and artists across disciplines. Combined with master classes and interviews with established, emerging, and mid-career directors, this manual is an artistic, logistic, and pedagogical exploration into the mechanics of theatre creation through the lens of a director. With so much useful material, you will become ready to leave your own mark on the theatrical landscape. The book includes a foreword by Anne Cattaneo and writing and interviews from Peter Hinton, Akram Khan, Daniel MacIvor, Morris Panych, Andrea Romaldi, Kat Sandler, Judith Thompson, Vincent de Tourdonnet, and many more.
