StageLab is a showcase of innovative work by University of Alberta Drama faculty hosted each summer. StageLab was founded in 2011.
To showcase the creative activity of our faculty in a professional setting. StageLab encourages collaboration between faculty and local artists and creates a unique context to share ideas about theatre.
During the Festival, the Timms Centre for the Arts becomes a laboratory to test new creative and interdisciplinary ideas, to hypothesize original approaches to theatre creation, and to experiment with innovative artistic and theoretical practices.
StageLab is supported through the Timms Innovation Fund.
