Dancewrite: A RealTime Dance Reviewing Workshop applications now open

If you’re fascinated by dance, open to new experiences and a writer, you’ll find this five-day workshop with mentors and the editors of leading Australian performing arts magazine RealTime an ideal introduction to the excitement, craft and responsibilities of reviewing.

Good reviewing is vital for the arts. It produces considered, constructive responses and encourages dialogue in the community. The best reviewing is well researched, vivid and cliché free.

From Tue 17 May – Sat 22 May, five participants will attend Next Wave dance performances, discuss works in detail, write reviews, share them with each other and edit them in consultation with the RealTime Managing Editors [who have conducted workshops in the UK and Asia, Canada and across Australia since 1996] and mentors.

Applications close Mar 9. For more information, head over here.

DanceWrite is presented as part of the Sharing Space program, conceived by curator Hannah Mathews. The RealTime DanceWrite Workshop is presented in partnership with Sharing Space and Next Wave and is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body.
