This multi-week director-focused festival, which typically takes place in January, has moved into the digital space for 2021. Four select New York Directing Fellows, early to mid-career artists chosen each year from hundreds of applicants worldwide, will direct and premiere four vibrant new theatrical productions to be made available this June. Our Classical Fellow also directed a piece earlier this year, presented in collaboration with Red Bull Theater, as part of the festival. Learn more about the shows below and how you can access each production.
