Watch Party & Critics Live!

Engaging with SIFA 2021’s programming, the Roundtable will bring critics together in discussion to unpack what criticism can look like as festivals take on more hybridised forms. Critics selected for AAMR@SIFA2021 will be able to catch selected shows.

Critics Live! is a critics-led programme series created by ArtsEquator to give arts audiences an insight into how critics formulate their responses to performances. Through Critics Live!, critics will share their experiences watching the show either in-venue or digitally, and discuss how the artists’ choices shape these respectively.   Critics Live! is open to public.
