On Sunday, 28 January, 3pm, ArtsEquator held its first public forum, “Theatre Reviews: Last Word or the Start of a Conversation”, featuring British theatre critic Lyn Gardner, M1 Singapore Fringe Festival director Sean Tobin, ArtsEquator’s guest editor Corrie Tan, and resident playwright at W!LD RICE, Alfian Sa’at. The conversation was moderated by Kathy Rowland, co-founder of ArtsEquator.
Exploring the role of the theatre critic in relation to artists and audiences, and the evolution of criticism with the emergence of the Internet, the panel discussion spanned around 95 minutes, including an audience Q&A session.
The forum was held as part of the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018, at the Centre 42 Black Box.
