Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP), Queensland Theatre, Melbourne Theatre Company and Sydney Theatre Company are proud to announce the artists selected to join the CAAP Directors Initiative.
This initiative is the result of a powerful partnership between the four companies to identify, develop and provide career pathways for Asian Australian directors in main stage theatre companies.
More than 100 applications were received for the two-year program. After introductory directing workshops led by Paige Rattray at QT, Jessica Arthur at STC and Sarah Goodes and Dean Bryant at MTC, 13 emerging directors have been selected to continue in the next phase of the program. This entails a series of seminars, workshops, networking opportunities and placements to observe company productions up close. The following phase of the program will offer hands-on opportunities as assistant directors, directing creative developments and play readings.
