Critical Acts

Invitation becomes the key issue in these Critical Acts. Brian C. Russo considers spectator response in relation to an artist's ability and willingness to invite the audience into the "house" of performance in his report on Wroclaw's first annual Brave Festival; and it is through an e-vite that audiences are brought together for Péter Halász's premortem funeral, related by Hungarian writer Tamés Szönyei in the wake of the artist's death. Kristina Mendicino addresses why disgruntled Connecticut audiences found uninviting the reinterpretation of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's preparadise, sorry now by Bosnian émigré Tea Alagic.
