The first in a series of monthly meet ups
fostering critical response to performing arts
About this Event
Produced by Maeve Mhairi MacGregor in collaboration with the Salamanca Arts Centre, Critical Culture is a time and place to get together and engage in structured critical response, learn about how and why to give and receive feedback with peers, and diversify critical perspectives on performing arts in Hobart.
There’s a massive and ever increasing dearth of critical response to performing arts work across the country, but critical response is worth a great deal to artists and audiences alike: providing growth for both, making connections between people and increasing empathy and communication that feeds a strong and exciting future for performing arts companies and indie production.
Critical Culture meet-ups operate like a book club: guest speakers every now and then, with meets monthly, and several shows discussed which range from professional theatre, dance, stand up comedy, circus, burlesque, and other forms of performing arts in and around Hobart and Launceston.
On the menu this month:
- Mental Health Week Comedy Roadshow
- Junction Arts Festival
- Underground Art Bar
- The Sapphires
- Thirty Years of Sixty Five Thousand
- The Cat in The Hat
- Very Still and Hard to See
If you’ve seen something that’s not on the menu, bring your thoughts to Critical Culture!
Sunday 20 October 2019, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Critical Culture is proudly supported by Salamanca Arts Centre, with support from Regional Arts Fund, with thanks to Theatre North.
