MONASH MEETS MALTHOUSE THEATRE / WILD BORE
The Centre for Theatre and Performance at Monash University presented ‘Monash Meets Malthouse’ panel discussion between sessions of Wild Bore on Saturday afternoon.
‘Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs.’ – John Osborne on theatre critics.
To coincide with Wild Bore, in this Monash Meets Malthouse panel, the dogs ask the lamp-posts and the lamp-posts ask the dogs!
The panel consisted of:-
- Alison Croggon (former theatre critic for The Australian, ABC, The Guardian and theatrenotes.com)
- Richard Watts (Artshub editor, RRR host, arts journalist and critic)
- Cameron Woodhead (theatre critic of The Age)
- Fleur Kilpatrick (playwright, broadcaster, critic and artistic coordinator of Monash University Academy of Performing Arts Theatre program) for a light-hearted (and possibly sometimes heated) conversation to discuss what are the limits of criticism and when can an artist reply to a critic.
The Q& A session was chaired by Head of Monash’s Centre for Theatre and Performance, playwright and actor, Associate Professor Jane Montgomery Griffiths, (who is no stranger to replying to critics herself – *cough* Antigone 2015!)
The discussion was looking at what the limits are of criticism and when can an artist reply to a critic, if ever!
It was fun, informative, just a little bit contentious, and it shone a light (albeit it a halogen street lamp one) on the puddles theatre critics leave behind!
Why don’t you check-out the podcast from the event to listen for yourself the questions and the responses on this contentious topic:- https://vimeo.com/219327110
