DLW 2020 Postponed.


We at Directors Lab West have been closely following the COVID-19 outbreak, and the health, safety, and well-being of our team, guest artists, and attendees has been and continues to be our top priority. 


Accordingly, we are postponing the 21st annual Directors Lab West and appreciate your understanding and patience as we follow the guidance of public health agencies, work with our partner venues to reschedule, and make decisions in the best interest of the community. 


Email us with any questions and please take care of yourselves and each other.

Directors Lab West 2020 

An 8-day intensive for emerging and mid-career theatre directors and choreographers

Celebrating 20 years!


From humble beginnings, DLW has grown into a premiere must-do event for directors and choreographers the world over with an incredible alumni network of more than 600 directors and choreographers. 


To celebrate the last two decades, we've launched a $20 for 20 campaign that will help us achieve the following goals:

  • ENSURE the Lab remains FREE for all participants

  • ARCHIVE the last 20 Labs online, creating a framework to share future Labs

  • CREATE opportunities for you, our alumni network, to connect with one another online and off year-round
