Assistant Professor Jason Chimonides has been selected for the Lincoln Center Director’s Lab, June 15–July 6, 2010, in New York.

The Lincoln Center’s Director’s Lab is a highly selective annual event for emerging, early-career theater directors to learn from experienced professionals in their field, as well as to stretch and grow in collaboration with their peers. Chimonides has been selected along with approximately seventy fellow artists from approximately 3,000 applications.

In past years, participants in the lab have worked with such luminary directors as Jo Bonney, Julie Taymor, Susan Stroman, and Mark Lamos.

Chimonides said, “As a director who works mainly with student actors, in a college setting, such an opportunity promises to be instrumentally valuable to me; not only in terms of helping me to ‘elevate my directorial game’ and interface with valuable contacts in the field, but also by allowing me to advance my primary research agenda: the integration of cognitive neuroscience and its discoveries on embodiment and the relationship between individuals into directorial craft.”
