Active Viewing May 15, 2009

by KateR

Please try this experiment with me: attend Orgy of Tolerance at On the Boards. Observe, react, process in sleep and in waking. Pull yourself together the following morning, sit down to read some news, clutching your coffee for comfort and support. Possessed by some demon, decide you might as well read the online article the Atlantic has recently posted on SpongeBob SquarePants.

Troubleyn's Orgy of Tolerance May 15, 2009

by Tania Kupczak

I had not quite registered the image onstage until I heard, "Sometimes this is just the more modern way of doing things." The cast was onstage warming up in their underwear and sports socks. Someone else responded, "Oh, now I see why everyone is sitting so close." I was sitting in front of an older couple and their friends who were seemingly out for a nice night of art/theatre.

Open direct letter to Jan Fabre: May 15, 2009

by

Jan, you missed the mark. You took aim at so many human sins and indulgences, and arranged them in a shocking, high-art fashion, and yet in the end, you said nothing, suggested nothing, and added nothing to what should be a grand conversation on awareness in the 21st century.
