SWF Words Go Round: Writing About Theatre

  • Grassroots Book Room 25 Bukit Pasoh Road Singapore, 089839 Singapore (map)


Hear from veteran and budding theatre critics and reviewers, as well as theatre practitioners on the intricate craft of writing about theatre in Singapore, in this session organised by the Singapore Writers Festival's Words Go Round team.

Why do we need theatre criticism and how does critical writing contribute to the art form? What are some of the problems faced with the lack of theatre criticism in Singapore? How do practitioners respond to negative reviews? In this no-holds-barred conversation between the panellists and the audience, we look at the role of theatre criticism and discuss the importance of critiquing art.

This session is in Chinese and features Oliver Chong 钟达成, Max Yam 任骏之, Chew Boon Leong 周文龙 & Liu Xiaoyi 刘晓义. This event is supported by Grassroots Book Room.
