Introducing our New Volumes: Critics in Residence for 2018-19

We’re thrilled to announce the four emerging writers taking part in New Volumes, our new Critics in Residence programme in collaboration with Basement Theatre.

Waveney Russ is a second-year Bachelor of Arts student at the University of Otago, studying politics, art history and Indigenous development. She has worked as the Visual Arts Editor for student magazine Critic, and hosts the Dunedin Public Art Gallery arts and culture show on Radio One. Her writing is due to feature in the Blue Oyster Art Project Space 2017 annual and HAMSTER Issue 3.

George Fenwick is an entertainment writer and critic for The New Zealand Herald. He studied communications at Auckland University of Technology, majoring in radio, and has previously worked at 95bFM and Newshub. Originally hailing from Auckland's Hibiscus Coast, he has a keen interest in film, theatre and (mostly pop) music. Keen to develop his critical voice, George is ready to take a deep dive into the weird and wonderful shows that the Basement Theatre has to offer.

India Essuah is a sociology honours student and writer who lives in Auckland (but calls Thames home). She's previously worked for The New Zealand Herald’s Viva, 95bFM, Dish magazine and Auckland city guide Gather & Hunt

Rachael Longshaw-Park is a freelance director and theatre tutor working with youth across Auckland. Since finishing her MA in theatre from The University of Auckland, Rachael has been honing her critical voice as a regular writer for theatre criticism blog Theatre Scenes and working on various projects across Auckland theatres as a director, dramaturg and performer. Rachael is passionate about theatre criticism, the theatre community and making accessible, thoughtful theatre.
