World Wide Lab is a truly international collective, with members who are creating dynamic, diverse and engaging work in every corner of the globe. First coming together as members of the Lincoln Center Directors' Lab in the summer of 2010, WWL desired to continue collaborating with each other in a way that would draw on the best elements of their Lab experience. Their mission is to share stories from far and near with audiences all around the world.
Laura Tesman is a participant in the Global Connections-IN the LAB program, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by Theatre Communications Group, the national organization for the professional not-for-profit American theatre.
"A DIRECTOR'S FEAST" is co-produced by World Wide Lab and Irondale Center.
