Writers who have been actively pursuing dance review writing, in various medias, either print and/or digital, takes precedence over inexperienced individual to enroll in this workshop. This workshop is hoped to be the push to improve published writing in mass media, and at the same time, to produce younger generation of dance writers, observers and critics in Indonesia.
The emphasis of this workshop program is direct writing practice; here the participants and the mentor would see a dance performance during IDF opening and other presentation. Subsequently, participants will produce a review or critic regarding the performance seen. Each text will then be explored by the mentors for adjustment so that the participant can further perfect their writing. By giving urgency to practice, the mentors could effectively apply their writing techniques.
