(DG) JAM is a daylong workshop, performance, and celebration of director-driven work that was first conceived by Pirronne Yousefzadeh, a New York City based director with the company, Rising Circle Theatre Collective. In May 2017, (DG) took a cue from Rising Circles’ values and hosted (DG) JAM for Philadelphia directors of color.  


Directors Gathering (DG) is presenting our third annual (DG) JAM on Sat, 6/16 with creator Pirronne Yousefzadeh and this year’s producers and art doulas Christina May and Phoebe Schaub.


We invite folx to send us nominations of early career directors of color that should JAM with (DG)! By Sun 4/8 at midnight, please share the director’s name, director’s contact info, and a brief intro to the director’s process and work to: submissions.directorsgathering@gmail.com

We will reach out to the directors by the end of April. 

We also hope you all will join us at (DG) JAM on Sat 6/16 at The Painted Bride to witness and celebrate original Philly director-generated work!

Meet the 2017 Directors Jam Lineup!
