Summary The role of the critic is no longer merely about helping an audience discriminate between 'better' and 'worse'. This panel discussion unpacks the changing value of discourse and critical writing. It engages thoughtful artists and dance writers who ask the sometimes fraught questions: What is the role of the critic? For who or what are they writing? Can anyone be a critic? What role can writing and discourse play in influencing the development of dance practice? And how does it affect dance as a form?
