Now in its eighth year, DirectorsLabChicago offers environments in which emerging and established stage directors from all over the world are able to consider, challenge, and engage in both the traditional and contemporary aspects of their craft.  This year's theme is:  Left Brain | Right Brain.  The Lab will take place from August 5th through August 10th, 2012 at the Chicago Cultural Center and several off-site locations.  

DirectorsLabChicago is very generously supported by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab in New York, and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society.

Applications must be emailed no later than Sunday, April 22nd, 2012.
