This weekend the BAC are hosting a dialogue about the role of theatre criticism in the 21st century. Leaders Jake Orr (A Younger Theatre) and Maddy Costa (the Guardian/States of Deliquescence) suggest that that the critic has become a stagnant force and therefore not representative of the ever changing theatre world.
“Theatre criticism hasn’t changed in about 300 years. But theatre has, radically. What could theatre writing be in the 21st century? ”
I hope to engage with these ideas in my writing and slowly develop my work and become a modern reviewer of theatre. Follow the link for my details of this event: http://www.artsjobs.org.uk/index.php?id=25&ne_post_id=89193
