        CRITERIA FOR PLAY JUDGING

  • THEME - RELEVANCE TO CONTEMPORARY ISSUES, LIFE EXPERIENCES, DEPTH WHICH PERMITS A SERIES OF INTERPRETATIONS
     

  • PLOT-  IS IT CONSISTENT? HOW IS IT SUSTAINED THROUGH THE PLAY? ORIGINALITY? NATURE OF PLOT?
     

  • CHARACTERS - THEIR DEVELOPMENT. HOW THE RELATIONS BETWEEN CHARACTERS IS BUILT- SOLID, CREDIBLE, CREATIVE...
     

  • TEXT: QUALITY OF LANGUAGE, CLARITY, STYLE, POETIC QUALITIES, DRAMATIC QUALITIES.
     

  • DEVELOPMENT OF TEXT... TRADITIONAL? ORIGINALITY - OF STYLE, OF CONTENT. IS THE PLAY CONSISTENT WITH THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN?
     

  • 'STAGEABLE QUALITIES' : CONSISTENCY OF THE PLOT, THE WAY THE TEXT IS SHARED OUT BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS, GENERATES AN ACTION THAT MOVES FORWARD ALREADY WHEN READING THE TEXT (PLEASURE OF ANTICIPATION) AND POSSESSES THE DESIRED QUALITIES THAT LEAD TO MEANINGFUL INTERACTION BETWEEN CHARACTERS.
     

  • ELEMENTS OF SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION AND HINTS AT PERFORMATIVE QUALITIES WHICH ENHANCE THE IDEA OF THE MISE-EN-SCENE.
