Critical Voices Programme #2
Are you a writer with a passion for theatre, especially of the more unusual kind? Perhaps you’re a wordsmith who is fascinated by object theatre, puppetry, cabaret and mask? Would you like to hone your skills as a critic and the opportunity to have your reviews published?
Critical Voices is a short programme designed to skill-up new critics to take on the burgeoning visual theatre scene, particularly puppetry. Hosted by the Puppet Centre and Animations Online, those who sign-up will get the chance to write for Animations Online, with advice on hand from your own expert mentor.
The programme will begin with an evening event at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton at 5pm on Monday 29 April – including expert speakers, practical advice and discussion, plus the chance to see 'Thinking It and Fainting'. After the event, each participant will be asked to review a piece of visual theatre, and allocated a mentor to offer them feedback and advice with it.
Speakers and mentors include:
Ella Parry-Davies (contributing editor, Exeunt)
Eleanor Margolies (founding editor, Puppet Notebook)
Jake Orr (theatre maker and writer)
Helen Babbs (editor, Animations Online)
There are just 10 places on offer. Tickets are £20 each, which includes a ticket to see 'Thinking It and Fainting', wine and nibbles. Apply for a place by email to email@example.com by the 21 April including a short letter explaining why you want to take part, and linking to or attaching some examples of your writing. Please put Critical Voices #2 in the subject line.
