Asian Arts Media RoundTable

What does the work of a critic look like as performances and festivals are reimagined for the future? This year’s Asian Arts Media Roundtable (AAMR) is back with AAMR@SIFA2021, a digital programme bringing together international arts writers, critics and journalists to learn, share and converse. 

Presented by ArtsEquator in collaboration with SIFA, this year’s programme launches with the inaugural Master Conversations series, focusing on production and technical theatre. Four in-depth presentations, led by master technical theatre practitioners, are designed to give critics insights into and knowledge in the under-discussed aspects of performance-making. 

Participants will engage closely with SIFA 2021’s programming, attending shows both in-person (for Singapore-based participants), and online via digital watch parties. Through four public critics-led post-show discussions known as Critics Live!, participants will, amongst others, explore the role of criticism in emerging hybrid performance spaces.  

The programme is open to arts writers, critics, and arts journalists, who will be selected for AAMR@SIFA2021 through an open call. All programmes will be held in English, with possibilities for translation support.

The four Critics Live! sessions – one of which will be held in-venue and three online – will be open to members of the public via registration. For more information and to register, visit
