The Directors and Directing conference is hosted by the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) from 29- 31 July 2011.

"The rise and fall and rise of the Director is almost a theatrical cliché. While emerging democracies favour multiple voices as opposed to singular interpretations, directors have re-emerged as powerful indicators and cultural barometers. The combination of directing with dance theatre, opera, puppets and visual theatre all make for rich deliberations."

The event includes an inventive exercise in determining the influence of directorial interpretation. Five directors (Fatima Dike, Aubrey Sekhabi, Sandra Temmingh, Jacqui Singer and Neil Coppen) will interpret and direct the same scene from Athol Fugard’s Boesman and Lena.
