Maska, časopis za scenske umetnosti

The attitude of the 4th generation

This year's first issue of magazine Maska is dedicated to the creativity of the youngest generation of Slovenian theatre directors (Lorenci, de Brea, Janežič), whose theatrical poetics was dubbed the theatre of surplus by the renowned critic Blaž Lukan. In a conversation with the philosopher Alenka Zupančič we pay special attention to the problem of comedy today (on the publication of her book Poetics, Volume Two), we consider the translucence of the real in the theatre of Josef Nadj, and together with the Austrain dance critic Helmut Ploebst analyse the Spiritual Grace of conceptual dance. A a critical reflection on contemporary art and its possibility/capability of subversion was contributed to this issue by the Belgian philosopher Dieter Lesage.
