Applications are now open for the seminar (which will work in English only). To apply, you must be a professional critic and aged between 18 and 35. All candidates are invited to send, as soon as possible, their registration form with a brief CV (just one page, please), two or three examples of their work (i.e. critical articles published in professional media), and a letter of recommendation from the person in charge of the IATC section in their country (if your country is an IATC member). All these documents should be sent in a single PDF file if possible. Please make sure of the following:

[NOTE: For the U.S., applications must go through ATCA International chair Jeffrey Jenkins.] 2) The candidate must have a good proficiency in English. Participants in the seminar will be provided with accommodation, meals, theatre tickets, and, for participants travelling by plane, transportation to and from the airport. Participants are required to meet the cost of their travel to Debrecen. Please note that participants may be required to share a hotel room with another participant of the same sex. The date of arrival for the seminar is March 24, and the date of departure is March 29. The seminar will be monitored by experienced theatre critic and IATC executive committee member Mark Brown (Scotland, UK).
Applications will be accepted until February 15. They must be sent to Adjunct-director of seminars, Mark Brown: [email protected] and Director of Seminars, Jean-Pierre Han: [email protected].
