SPILL STINGS

Thu 01 Jan 1970


SPILL Stings are a collection of commissioned critical writing on the festival by Theron Schmidt, Mary Paterson, Johanna Linsley and Madeleine Hodge.  Our responses will be posted here throughout the festival – before, during, and after.  As writers, we are interested in the way that this work gets under our skin: the sting of it, and its itch. 

This writing, then, is a kind of scratching….
