This announcement isn't about theater per se, but if there are any writers out there who usually write about  theater, then you should try applying for this workshop.  The workshop discusses critical theories (usually used for literature) applied to all the arts and humanities, depending on the interest/s of the applicants and their submitted entries, including theater/performance/performativity.

The University of Santo Tomas
is now accepting applications to the
2011 UST J. Elizalde Navarro National Workshop in Criticism on the Arts and Humanities 
to be held in Baguio City late May.
Deadline: May 2, 2011

The workshop is endowed and organized by The Varsitarian, the 83-year-old official student publication of UST. It is held in honor of the late National Artist for the Visual Arts and art critic J. Elizalde Navarro, who was art editor and critic-poet of The Varsitarian during his student days; and in connection with the Quadricentennial Celebration of UST, which was established in 1611 and is now Asia's oldest university.

Fellowships will be given to 10 promising young critics who would like to enhance their analytical, research and writing skills.

To be considered for the fellowship, applicants should submit a scholarly, properly documented critical essay (10-15 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font) on the following art forms: painting, sculpture, architecture, dance, drama, music, film or photography.

Manuscripts should be submitted in hard copy and on CD, preferably in MS Word, together with an updated resumé; a recommendation letter from an academic mentor or an art critic; a certification that the works are original; and two 2X2 ID pictures.
