ACT CRITIQUE VIVA 2020

Competitors registered to compete in the 2020 edition of the VIVA Fest may submit their act for feedback from VIVA Fest Judges. When recent footage is not available, acts can submit a pre-pandemic rehearsal video.

 

Competitors registered to compete in more than one solo act will ONLY be permitted to submit one of their acts for review. 

 

Competitors registered in a solo and in a group act can receive feedback for both, please submit a separate form for each act. 

 

Group acts: 

Submit only 1 FORM PER ACT - we will include the names of all participants on the ‘feedback certificate’ and it will be emailed to the email address provided. 

 

We encourage group acts comprised of members not currently living in the same household to consider submitting pre-pandemic footage. 

 

Deadline:

The deadline for submitting your video is September 30th, 2020.

Video submissions that are password protected WILL NOT BE EVALUATED. 

ONLY Vimeo and YouTube links will be accepted. 

 

Please allow 2 weeks to receive your evaluation.

Remember to follow the time constraints imposed on each category:

-3 minutes for solos/duos in Novice and Student Categories - 4 minutes for group acts in Student

-4 Minutes for solos/duos in Emerging - 5 minutes for group acts in Emerging

 

Judges will provide feedback, not a score, on the following aspects of the performance:

 

-Difficulty

-Execution

-Artistry/Entertainment

 

Due to the volume of artists to be evaluated, judges will not be available to discuss their comments. 

 

VIVA will showcase acts deserving of an “honorable mention” on our Facebook and Instagram in October!

 

See judge bios below.

This service is offered at no cost to all VIVA 2020 registered competitors.
