Frontseat, this Sunday 27th March, 10.10pm TV One
THE ART OF CRITICISM:
Oliver Driver takes time out in a hotel room with Time Out London's theatre critic Jane Edwardes, teasing out the finer points of reviewing and asking whether she has any friends left in the industry.
Julie Hill provides an introduction to the practice of falsificationism, meeting artists who've created fictional films, art institutes, even a worldwide conspiracy theory. The term comes from a Karl Popper quote: "sophisticated methodological falsificationism".
24 HOUR DEADLINE THEATRE:
Ten playwrights, ten directors, thirty actors, three airplane seats, one prosthetic leg, in the Herald Theatre over one weekend. Frontseat’s research director Mary Parker immerses us in the madness of Urbis 24 Hour Deadline Theatre.
THE DAY THE ESTONIANS ARRIVED:
Artists Sandra Jogeva and Margus Tamm swept into town earlier this month to spray fake breast milk at unsuspecting passers-by, amongst other stunts. They also employed three local art gals to answer their "Hot Art Chatline", offering free advice about art to anyone brave enough to place a call.
PLUS: We select winners from the overwhelming response to our "free art" competition, and you also had words about ticket-buying nightmares.
