Witness is a curated critical website for the performing arts community, founded by Alison Croggon and Robert Reid.
It operates on a monthly cycle. Each month we will upload reviews, at least one long-form essay, at least one video in Robert Reid’s History series, and our two podcasts: This Month with Witness, in which we discuss recent shows and issues, and The Witness Interview, which will feature in-depth interviews with performing arts figures.
Our major mission at Witness is to rethink criticism of the performing arts. We believe that cultural criticism is a collective endeavour that’s stimulated by thoughtful individual voices, and this is the model we want to evolve. Witness aims to be a continuous work in progress.
Witness is proudly made on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations. We respectfully acknowledge their Elders past and present.
