Critical Conversation

Critical Conversation is a free event that encourages critical discussion about work being made and presented in Perth.

Each month, a panel of artists, arts workers, producers and critics engage in a facilitated conversation in front of an audience about work that has been presented in Perth in the preceding weeks. Following on from this, the facilitator leads a Q&A with the audience and panellists. The aim of Critical Conversation is to encourage dialogue, provoke thought and increase the level of critical discussion and quality of response to work in Perth.

The Blue Room Theatre bar will be open following each session for the conversations to continue.

The series will begin with a panel titled What We Talk About, When We Talk About Work. Unlike other sessions, the first panel will not look at any specific works, but rather how we are responding to work in different settings (foyers, online, feedback sessions, media) and will lay the groundwork for the remainder of the year.

The first session will be facilitated by Humphrey Bower (actor, writer, director), with Shona Erskine (choreographer), Emily McLean (director) and Chris Donnelly (lighting designer) as the panel of artists for the evening.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event, but RSVP is essential through the form below.
