Arctic Arts Festival and Ravnedans invite performing artists, writers and critics to lectures and workshops on performing arts criticism in a globalized world.
Performing artists in Norway increasingly tour their productions internationally. Parallel to this, criticism expands from traditional news media to new publishing platforms. Do performing arts reviews contribute to international dissemination of performances? What role does criticism play in a major Nordic newspaper and in a web editorial run by critics?
- Lecture: Mette Garfield (DK) on the newspaper Politiken’s critics education
- Lecture: Axel Andersson (SE) on the web editorial Kritiklabbet.se, initiated by critics
- Workshop and panel discussion
Lectures are open to everyone interested in performing arts and performing arts criticism. As a workshop participant, you will meet and discuss with performing arts critics who write for editors in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Japan and the United States.
Workshop and panel talks will be moderated by critics Hild Borchgrevink and Anette Therese Pettersen, both former editors of the Norwegian online magazine Scenekunst.no
The project is initiated by PAHN, Dansearena Nord, Arctic Arts Festival and Ravnedans.
