CALL: Young Critics' Workshops in June

Workshop for Young Critics in Limoges

The International Association of Theatre Critics (AICT–IATC) is organizing a workshop for young theatre critics scheduled to be held June 11–17, 2018, in Limoges, France. The program will be undertaken during the Festival International des Écoles de Théâtre, with support from the Théâtre de l'Union, Centre Dramatique National du Limousin. Potential participants are invited to apply, as soon as possible, to join one of two working groups of six participants maximum per group (one French-speaking group and one in English). 

Candidates must be professional critics between the ages of 18 and 35. All candidates are invited to send an application form completed (see below) with a brief resume (one page), 2 or 3 samples of published articles in media and a letter of recommendation from the person in charge of the AICT–IATC section in their country, if the country has an IATC section.

All documents must be sent in a single PDF file, if possible. Please note the following:
1) Only candidates may apply, not the national representative of AICT–IATC sections. 
2) Candidates must have a good knowledge of one of the two working languages. Please describe your fluency level in English and French.

Participants will be hosted in a shared double room. Noon and evening meals will be provided. You will receive a free entry pass for all the shows and encounters during the Festival. You will also be picked up at the train station.

Working-group monitors will include theatre critic Jean-Pierre Han, assisted by Mariko Anazawa (French-speaking group). The name of the English-speaking monitor will be announced later.

Applications will be accepted until May 8, 2018, and they must be sent to the Director of Seminars, Jean-Pierre Han: A final list of all accepted applications will be announced as soon as possible, in order to allow time for participants to prepare for their trip, and get visas for France as necessary.
