PAST EVENT: Masterclass: Daniel Brooks on Directing

MONDAY, MAY 11 @ 4:30 PM    ||   FREE

Acclaimed director Daniel Brooks (Waiting for Godot, A Doll's House) leads a one-hour online masterclass on Directing. Using The Seagull as a reference you'll gain insight into the process of a director's work, from preparation, to casting, to research, and rehearsals.

It was fabulous, inspiring and good for the artistic soul.

What a pleasure it was to listen in to [the] Soulpepper Masterclass with Philip Akin. Such wisdom and finesse in every word he speaks. Can't wait for theatres to open again...

Philip Akin’s Masterclass through #SpTrainingRoom is reminding me how spoiled we are in Canadian theatre to have amazing artists like him.
