Cultivating Critics of Color: A Panel Discussion
Curated by Regina Victor and Tanuja Jagernauth
A conversation curated by Tanuja Jagernauth and Regina Victor responding to the urgent need for authentic conversation about theatrical criticism.
Questions that will be addressed at the panel:
What are the avenues to becoming a theatre critic? What obstacles prevent writers of color from becoming theatre critics? How does developing critics of color benefit our industry? What programs or platforms are writers of color currently using to promote their work?
If you're interested in the answers to these questions, come be a part of the discussion at Chicago Dramatists!
Moderator: Regina Victor
Panelists: Ike Holter, Coya Paz, Loy Webb, and a Mentor/Mentee from the Goodman Youth Critics Program.
About the Saturday Series
Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.
All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.
We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
