Quotes from last year’s Emerging Directors Resident:

Renelde Headley, Emerging Director, 2016 Resident, said this:

“Being gifted the opportunity to experiment with, investigate and develop my own style of directing in such an intensive way has been welcomed and greatly appreciated.”

“Perhaps the best aspect of the residency was being able to receive mentorship from Rawle Gibbons. Having the chance to pick the brains of such an experienced practitioner was phenomenal, he was often able to guide me with great suggestions as well as help make certain ideas more concrete.”
