Theatre is the First to Raise the Courtain Over the Future

With the first issue, published in November 1991, Maja Breznik and Irena Štaudohar began paving the way for a reflection upon the theatre created by the so called third generation. The preceding editorial board had exhausted its motives and vacated the space. The new editors invited a spectre of interesting collaborators to cooperate with, among them Miha Zadnikar, Eda Čufer, Aldo Milohnić, Uršula Cetinski, Roman Uranjek, Aleksandra Rekar, Zemira Alejbegović, Irena Wolle, Matej Bogataj, Ženja Leiler, Alen Ožbolt, Diana Koloini, Marina Gržinić, Marko Peljhan.

This volume shows (in the first place) editorial ambitions to install the home performing production into an international context; (second) it doesn’t wish to separate, to fix boundaries of individual stage forms, but instead wishes for a constructive and creative dialogue between contemporary dance, theatre, opera etc.; (third) suspects that the then territory of theory in our country has to be set asunder; and (fourth) that the home environment is lacking greatly in classical modernist texts on theatre. In the next years theoretical the discourse is orientated above all towards: translation of modernist and avant-garde techno-poetic texts, that the French theory of the 20th century is more strongly introduced into the idea of theatre (structuralism, post-structuralism, deconstruction) and that the notion of the body is introduced into the theoretical discourse on theatre.

The position of the first Maska is defined by the theme Five Years after the Baptism, containing mostly national (and the then shortly ex-national) authors’ reflections upon the phenomenon of the GSSN’s Baptism under the Triglav. The performance in question has truly legitimised a new theoretical discourse, since in 1986, it became clear through some reviews in the daily newspapers that the critics do not possess the language with which to grasp the performance. It seems that the first issue of Maska (after Maske) has opened the gate and has (retrospectively speaking) through its visions made some true prognoses.
