Critical Acts

Reappropriating the iconography of “America” as portrayed in Melville’s Moby-Dick, the New York–based Radiohole offers in Fluke what Steve Luber dubs a hyperreal performance. The hyperreal is also what happened to Sara Brady when she rode through Dublin with the international trio Rimini Protokoll as they reimagined the journey as a trek from Bulgaria to Ireland. The last Critical Act takes place in Tangier where Khalid Amine found Zoubeir Ben Bouchta’s Lalla J’mila a negotiation of the terrains of law, gender, and “place-specific” theatre.
