It’s a special “On the Media” episode of
IDGI to wrap up our fourth(!) season of reviewing what we’ve seen on YEG stages. We cover some of our Fringe faves, critique the critics, the bewildering “star-creep” of some outlets, and muse about the new era of arts coverage in the city. Plus, convos about the new Sterling Awards non-gendered acting categories, and just-what-the-heck happened with the PR mess at Alberta Theatre Projects earlier this summer.
The 2018 Edmonton International Fringe Festival is upon us! And that means artists and audiences alike are eagerly awaiting the reviews to come out. On this episode of I Don’t Get It, our ever-silent producer Andrew steps in front of the microphone to chat with Fawnda and Paul about everything you ever wanted to know about Fringe reviews. From the controversial use of star reviews to who has the right to review shows, this episode opens the hood to look at the criticism engine that can make or break an artist’s Fringe run. Happy Fringing everyone!
The 2018/19 theatre season is fast approaching. Do you have a show or season info you’d like us to include in our listings? Email the details to us at IDGIdance@gmail.com.
