Moderated discussion around the topic of selecting season content the first of a new series presented by the recently expanded DLC
DirectorsLabChicago is pleased to announce a Directors Town Hall, co-hosted in conjunction with Victory Gardens Theater, on Monday, February 22 at 7:00 p.m. The moderated conversation will focus on the topic “Choosing Seasons: How do current events influence play selection?”
Relevant to current and aspiring directors and artistic directors, the discussion will explore topics such as:
• How do current events attract you to certain projects?
• How do you plan years in advance yet stay current?
• How can a topical play be given enough time and space to develop, yet stay current?
The event is free, but advance registration is required at directorslabchicago.com/choosing-seasons. There will be a cash bar. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for informal gathering, and the town hall discussion begins at 7:30.
Victory Gardens Biograph Theater is located at 2433 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago.
For questions or more information about the event, email Director of Programming Wm. Bullion at email@example.com.
Choosing Seasons is the first of a new series of events to be hosted by the recently expanded DLC. After celebrating its tenth anniversary season, the DLC replaced its 2015 Lab with a vision retreat for Chicago theatre luminaries to explore the Lab’s direction for the next 10 years and beyond.
Shortly after the retreat, DLC welcomed back committee member Wm. Bullion into a new role as Director of Programming, and introduced new member Tobi Mattingly as Director of Marketing & Communications. A larger announcement of the 2016 Lab and additional future events is forthcoming.
