THE KTA BLOGSPACE MANDATE

Hello, reader!

If this is your first time visiting this site, welcome. If not, welcome back. This blog will serve as an open space for critical thinking, debates, and reviews for theatre in Kingston. If you see a show that inspires you, write about it. If you see a show that you despise, write about it. If you find a work of art to be controversial, or beautiful, or alarming, write about it. If you’ve stumbled on the Next Big Thing, write about it. If you read a comment you disagree with, engage and explore why.

Tell us: Where do you feel theatre is going? How does the form adapt to and incorporate new technology? How do we pay artists a living wage? How do artists bridge the gap between indie work and mainstream theatre?

Whatever the topic, add your voice to the canopy. Share. Only through expression, given and received, do we grow.
