Theatre Criticism in the Changing Digital World. Theatre Department, U of Ottawa. OPEN DISCUSSION….all are welcome.
News from Capital Critics Circle
Today theatre criticism faces many challenges: in the era of open internet writing the practice of theatre criticism in Canada and worldwide is rapidly changing. It becomes more experimental, reflecting the style of journalistic blogosphere not mainstream criticism currently published in official newspapers and magazines. Who is a true benefactor of such criticism – is it general public, theatre companies, individual artists, or writers/bloggers/critics themselves, who often use digital writing to express their personal opinion in public, often not in the forms of professional theatre criticism but as self-promotion?
