Critical Acclaim

arts@work, in association with Ten Days, proudly announces Critical Acclaim, a professional development initiative to increase the quality and calibre of critical review and writing in Tasmania.

Critical analysis, discussion and review are essential to the continued development of our performing arts sector and throughout Ten Days, 27 March to 5 April, seven Tasmanian writers will be undertaking a critical writing intensive, with a focus on theatre, dance and new media performance review.

Critical Acclaim participants include Animater and Creative Producer Lucy Wilson Magnus; Artist, Designer and Curator, Sara Wright; Visual and Performing Arts Agent, Manager and Producer, Kylie Eastley; Actor and Journalist, Mark Cutler; Book Editor and Reviewer, Stephanie Cahalan; Actor and Writer, Anica Boulanger - Mashberg; and Project Manager, Actor and Writer, Gai Anderson.

Critical Acclaim puts forward an impressive range of performance experiences, guest speakers and ideas on reviewing and critical writing. The program includes attendance of up to 30 performances, events and forums associated with the Ten Days program and utilises a number of experts within the field.

Critical Acclaim facilitators include National Theatre Critics Alison Croggon and James Waites; Director of Playwriting Australia, Chris Mead; Editor of Art Monthly, Maurice O’Riordan; Art Critic and Curator, Sean Kelly; Theatre Critic, Director and Actor, Robert Jarman; Actor, Dramaturg and Producer, Iain Lang; Dance Critic and Educator, Lesley Graham; and Producer and Director, Annette Downs.

It is an important part of the Critical Acclaim process that the participant’s reviews are shared with Tasmanian audiences as this develops dialogue between artists, their work and the broader community. arts@work would like to thank its media partners for making this possible and Ten Days for its generous contribution to the Critical Acclaim program.
