For this project, we welcome theater critic Naoto Moriyama to lecture on how to approach experimental performing arts with a critical eye. Write your own review after viewing the set program and send it in; chosen applicants will receive one-on-one lessons from Moriyama and have their brushed-up pieces featured on this website and future editions of the festival magazine. If you’re interested in learning more about performing arts writing, this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself!
