Science, technology, spectacle

Even though the first issue of the third volume at the end of January 1993 brought a theme section on the Actor, it seems that the issue owes its importance, if not the role of a turning point, to the new theoretical and creative territory it has opened for the millennium. At the Štajerska jesen in Gradec, the members of Maska’s editorial board and their loyal contributors witnessed one of the biggest phenomena from the beginning of the 90s, a performance by the group Survival Research Laboratories from San Francisco, had an interview with their spiritual leader Mark Pauline, and at the festival Ars Electronica, Marko Peljhan caught an Australian technologist, philosopher and performer Stelarc, talked to him and made the first relevant document for any Slovenian medium about this artist. In the Editorial, Irena Štaudohar says: “Thus the issue with a 16-page enlargement contains, next to the constant sections, also a theme section concerned with one of the most problematic segments of theatre in general – the problem of acting and the actor. We invited local as well as foreign theatre theoreticians to cooperate. The exclusive interviews published, the first with the leader of the Survival Research Laboratories group – Mark Paulin, and the second with the Australian artist Stelarc, immanently form a link with the actor, who with the first (SRL) is replaced by technology – machines, and with the second (Stelarc), the technology enters his own body. With the text dealing with the comparison of the before mentioned phenomena, we have opened a new rubric Technology, Science and Spectacle, which will follow the newest intersections between science and the art of spectacle.”

Goran Sergej Pristaš (today an editor of the Zagreb Frakcija) writes about current Croatian theatre, Rastko Močnik writes about diction in theatre and about Ana Monroe Theatre, Aldo Milohnić writes about the second Video-dance festival that took place then (he wrote about the first one in the second issue) and tried to fill the information void of the Slovenian international festival production, Eliot Caplan writes about the notion of a dance movie from his own experience, which is followed by the theme section On Acting and the Actor. Marko Peljhan in the rubric Science, Technology, Spectacle writes about technology that takes over the place of the actor in a modern spectacle, and the section The Constructors of the Modern Thought features texts by Friedrich Kiesler.
