Introduction to Performance Criticism with SA Writers Centre

There are many types of performance critics: from the critic as consumer guide, letting audiences know if a show is worth their money or not; to the critic as historian, placing performance in its broader cultural context for future posterity.

This workshop, focusing on theatre and dance, is for everyone who is interested in considering performance – both those who want to go on to create written reviews themselves, and those who just want to have a deeper more critical relationship with the work that they see.

Everyone's a critic: this workshop will show you how.

Participants will learn:

  • The different forms of reviewing and modes of criticism
  • How to be a more engaged audience member
  • How to consider the different components of a performance
  • How to use written language as an act of translating physical performance
  • How to better consider the place of performance in broader culture and society.
