Theatre, like its audience, tends to make connections: How do the building blocks of a performance come together? Can local work claim a universal passport?

In partnership with the NXTSTP network, Irish Theatre Magazine and Dublin Theatre Festival, this event will advance our conversations about the making and reception of Irish and international work at home and abroad.

Bringing together international critics familiar with the evolving ways of making theatre, this forum will consider performance from several angles. Long before a light dims or a curtain raises, the conditions in which a performance is made and how it is shared, often between nations, begin to shape its meaning. Here we consider that secret life and public display of creation, while asking if new approaches to criticism can offer fresh insights into an ever-changing art form.

Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
