2020 Directing Masterclasses

msterclass PR header.jpg

DirectorsLabChicago (DLC), in partnership with Haven Chicago and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, is offering a series of five directing master classes in 2020, presented free of charge in different Chicago neighborhoods.

The classes will be led by a wide variety of artists from diverse backgrounds, but our priority is to showcase those who are working to innovate the industry, exploring immediate and evolving styles, trends and techniques of directing live performance. Classes will likely take place throughout 2020, and each one will be limited to about 25 participants.

If you are interested in attending a masterclass, please submit your information through the form below. As each event is scheduled, we will distribute announcements and information about registration to those who complete this form.

This project is partially supported by a CityArts Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, with Year of Chicago Theatre funding from BMO Harris Bank and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
