InReview Mentorship Recipient

Helpmann Academy and InReview are thrilled to introduce Gianluca Noble as the 2022 recipient of the Helpmann Academy InReview Mentorship.

Gianluca is an Honours graduate of the Drama program at Flinders University, who has a passion for contemporary performance, new writing and the empowerment of young people through the creative arts.

A partnership between Helpmann and InReview, the program was developed to cultivate the next generation of arts reviewers and re-build the practice of robust discourse and analysis of South Australian performing and visual arts, in conjunction with the launch of the InReview site, a new sub-site of InDaily.

From February 2022 Gianluca will be partnered with a number of InReview mentors, such as Jane Llewelyn, who will help him in building his skills in the art of review writing, with the aim to produce a number of pieces to be published on InReview.

Gianluca says that he is hoping that the mentorship will feed into his theatre practice, by expanding his writing skills and critical language.

“I hope that the mentorship will expand my critical writing skills and develop my skills for creative collaboration. I hope that working as a reviewer will not only help me with reviewing the arts, but also expand my understanding of dramaturgy, directing, and production, as I attend various events across genres that will undoubtedly have different production limitations. Also, researching shows to review will help me gain a broader understanding of the current zeitgeist in local, national, and international arts practice. I think it’s anyone’s dream if they get into the arts to engage with what they love every day, and I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to do that.”
