Theatre Directors Retreat at Domaine de l'Armellière in Arles, France

July 9, 2013 | By French Culture

For the first time, the Sundance Institute and the LUMA Foundation will collaborate to host the Sundance Institute | LUMA Foundation Theatre Directors Retreat at Domaine de l'Armellière, July 29 – August 9, in Arles, France. Under the supervision of Philip Himberg, Artistic Director of the Sundance Institute Theatre Program, Producing Director Christopher Hibma and Program Associate Anne Kauffman, the Retreat will be the first theatre director-centered residency at the Institute.

The Retreat will complement other initiatives of the Theatre Program by providing specific resources to directors in the field, including meeting the identified needs for more opportunities to exchange ideas and practices with other mid-career, freelance directors. The six directors selected to participate this year are: Anne Kauffman, Lisa Peterson, Indhu Rubasingham, Ken Rus Schmoll, Liesl Tommy, and Chay Yew.

Philip Himberg, Artistic Director of the Sundance Institute Theatre Program, said, “We have long felt compelled to understand and support the specific needs of stage directors, and when our director alum, Anne Kaufman, came to us with many of the same concerns, we knew it was time to deepen our support in this area.”
