Workshop for Young Critics in Limoges, France

The IATC is organizing a Workshop for Young Critics, which will take place from June 11 to 17, 2018 in Limoges, France, within the framework, and with the support of the “Festival international des écoles de theatre”, set up by the Théâtre de l’Union – Centre dramatique national du Limousin. Applications are now open for two working groups of six maximum participants each (one English-speaking and one French-speaking). To apply, you must be a professional critic and aged between 18 and 35. All candidates are invited to send, as soon as possible, their application form completed with a brief resume (just one page, please), two or three samples of already published articles in the media and a letter of recommendation from the person in charge of the AICT/IATC section in their country (if their country has an IATC section). All these documents must be sent in a single PDF file, if possible. Please note the following:

1) The registration form must be sent by the candidate, not by the IATC section officers.
2) The candidate must have a good proficiency in one of the two working languages (please indicate clearly whether you wish to be considered for the Francophone or the Anglophone group).

You will be hosted in double rooms; meals are offered at noon and in the evening. You will get a free entry pass for all the shows and have access to all the encounters during the Festival. You will also be picked up at the train station.

The monitors of the working groups will be theatre critic Jean-Pierre Han, assisted by Mariko Anazawa (French-speaking group). The name of the English-speaking monitor will be announced later.
Applications will be accepted until May 8, 2018, and they must be sent to the Director of seminars, Jean-Pierre Han: jp.han@free.fr . A final list of all accepted applications will be announced as soon as possible, in order to allow time for participants to prepare for their trip, and get a visa for France if necessary.
