Talks and Readings /


The full effect of a performance can take a while to settle. As our live encounters resolve into memories, we shape our reactions into an opinion available to share. So, what did you think?
As part of DTF’s annual season of panels and public discussions, the makers of Blast, a new podcast on Irish theatre, will host a lively critical conversation about the context for this year’s work, its history and reception, and the talking points of the festival.
Bringing together Irish and international critics, this forum considers performance from several angles and welcomes audience feedback.
Here we consider the secret life and public display of creation, while asking if new approaches to criticism can offer fresh insights into an ever-changing art form.
If there’s nothing more deadly than consensus, this new discussion also provides an opportunity for spirited debate, challenge and perhaps something rarer still – a chance to change your mind.
