James Embedded As Critic

Squad7 Grad James Varney has been sitting in as Embedded Critic on theatre maker James Monaghan’s rehearsals for Forest. James has been taking notes and having conversations within the rehearsal room and recording his reflections in a series of blog posts, before reviewing the final performance at HOME’s PUSH Festival for online theatre magazine, Exeunt.

In his first blog on the process, James wrote:

“I’m ready to have a liminal relationship with these rehearsals… I hope to write a muddy piece of criticism, swirling with familiarity with the show, its performer, and its rehearsal process.”

One final blog post is forthcoming, but you can read them all so far through the links below:




James’s review of the performance is online here.
