As part of Theatre Ontario’s Adjudicator Professional Development series, we are excited to offer a new workshop for Ontario’s adjudicators “The Adjudicator’s Voice: How to Say What You Mean Without Saying What You Think”, lead by Annette G. Procunier.
Suitable for both emerging adjudicators and for established adjudicators interested in enhancing their skills, this workshop will help adjudicators with the art of critique and strengthening their communications.
Adjudicators at the workshop will:
- Explore style, language, content and focus in establishing rapport and creating an environment for learning
- Discuss public versus private adjudication
- Discuss how to engage participants in dialogue without allowing them to take control of the situation
- Discuss professional judgement versus personal opinion
As an adjudicator, our instructor has participated in festivals in Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States having judged more than 125 festivals in 30 years including Theatre Ontario Festival, and festivals for QUONTA and EODL. She has adjudicated the World Theatre Festival in Monaco for IATA and the national festival for the American Association of Community Theatre four times. She is the author of Do You See What I See? on adjudication.
The workshop is being held on Saturday May 18 in Richmond Hill. This is during the Theatre Ontario Festival, and gives participants an opportunity to also attend performances and Festival adjudications, and to meet with members of the community theatre sector from across Ontario.
