Critics discussion at the Wheeler Centre

The video below is from a recent discussion hosted by the Wheeler Centre.

Critical Failure: Theatre
Is theatre criticism in Australia failing practitioners and audiences? In this energetic discussion, Alison Croggon, Julian Meyrick, Cameron Woodhead and Stephen Sewell assess the role of the critic in contemporary Australian theatre.

They ponder the longevity of a critic’s verdict, the role of opinion, emotion and tact, and the relevance of ‘objectivity’. As the conversation fires up, our panellists critique and question the methods of their fellow debaters. More than a discussion of reviewing for the stage, this debate looks at the necessity of critics in improving art.
