CAAP Directors Initiative | Queensland Theatre

Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP), in partnership with Queensland Theatre, Melbourne Theatre Company, and Sydney Theatre Company is proud to announce the CAAP Directors Initiative, aimed at unearthing, nurturing and developing Asian Australian directors for the stage.

Together the four companies are committed to working to identify, develop and embed Asian Australian directors in the three largest state theatre companies in Australia.

CAAP Directors Initiative offers a tailored training program over two years for selected participants in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

The first year will include directing workshops, close up observation of mainstage productions and a range of professional development and networking opportunities. In its second year, the program will provide hands-on directorial training and engagement with the host companies.

Applications have now closed for Queensland artists, and an announcement of the program participants for 2018-19 will be made shortly.
