Special Section: Franklin Furnace

    A "no holds barred" attitude and open-door policy made Franklin Furnace an "autonomous zone"-as C. Carr calls it-in the New York art world.The artist came first in this artist-run space. In this special section on Franklin Furnace and its move from liveness into virtuality, artists, curators, critics, and others who were there remember the artwork that filled the Furnace's walls, shelves, windows, basement, and beyond. Founding director Martha Wilson argues for the Furnace's mission to single-handedly "make the world safe for avantgarde art."

    Subject Headings:
    • Osanai, Kaoru, 1881-1928 -- Criticism and interpretation.
    • Theater -- Japan.
    Abstract:
      In Tokyo in 1909, Osanai Kaoru staged Ibsen's John Gabriel Borkman, thereby launching the Japanese modern theatre, shingeki, New Theatre. But many of Kaoru's actors were kabuki-the "old theatre." The implications of a new, art theatre performed by traditional actors until now has not been thoroughly analyzed.What were Osanai's "contradictory" ideas about "professional amateurism"? How did modernity cause epistemological tensions in modern Japanese theatre?

    • Braunschweig, Stéphane -- Criticism and interpretation.
    Abstract:
      Braunschweig is one of the young European directors developing innovative scenographic techniques that interrogate the relationship between space, body, and text. Braunschweig's uses three-dimensional theatre-machines to explore ambiguities and contradictions, even as he confronts spectators with the materiality of the stage and the performative body.

  • Children of Silence: Reflections on Forty Years of Odin Teatret

    Subject Headings:
    • Odin teatret.
    • Theater.
    Abstract:
      Meditating on Odin Teatret's longevity, Barba writes what he calls "a fairy tale" about two brothers-Error and Disorder-who travel the world shadowing each other. Disorder is the irruption of an energy that confronts us with the unknown. And Error is a liberating challenge to orthodox art. For Barba, the creative interaction of Error and Disorder is the energy source driving true Odin on its amazing 40-year-odyssey.
