Youth Theatre Ireland returns to DTF for the 17th iteration of Young Critics. This year has been like no other, with a Young Critics programme to match. Since June, eighteen young people from across Ireland have been honing their critical skills from the comfort and safety of their own homes. They have been guided on their journey of critical discovery by our expert facilitators: Alan King in Dublin and theatre critic Dr. Karen Fricker in Toronto. Over the course of the festival, the Young Critics will engage with several programmed events and will present their critical responses at this special online panel. Young Critics has been working with digital tools for criticism for the last number of years and we hope that 2020 will
showcase this like never before.
This Youth Theatre Ireland programme is funded by the Arts Council and the Department for Children and Youth Affairs.
11 Oct, 4pm
Duration: 75 mins.
Young Critics' Panel will be available online during the Festival. We will update this page with further details in due course.
