    The International Symposium for Directors, sponsored by La MaMa Umbria is a training program for professional directors, choreographers and actors. Internationally renowned theatre artists conduct workshops and lecture/demonstrations.
    Participants will be exposed to a variety of theatrical perspectives during the Symposium, from instructors who will expand their sense of what is possible in the theatre. Directors attending the Symposium see how prominent artists on the international scene create their unique productions. The workshops are participatory, and it is expected that all attendees will engage actively in the processes of the various teaching artists. This summer, we host the following artists:

Session One:
Patrick Acogny (Senegal/France) "Directing Using African Dance Forms"
Tina Landau (USA) "Viewpoints and Composition"
Naum Panovski (Macedonia) "Collaboration and Aesthetics of Joe Chaikin"
