Local Association of theatre critics (ATK) is the independent union that is not supported by the state, it lists currently 168 professionals, it makes the basis of the Russian National section of IATC https://teacrit.ru/

Several journals of professional theatre criticism are published in Russia on paper and in web based form:






I would like to highlight the following topics for possible IATC Conferences that attract attention in the conferences and discussions in journals here:

New languages of directing art in the 21st century;

Institutional and professional theatre criticism in the context of social network discussion;

Theatre school and new forms of theatre;

Combining artistic and other types of contents in participative theatre projects.
