Croatian Drama- FRAKCIJA, theatre magazine in English and Croation

You can buy new issue of theatre magazine Frakcija (in English and Croatian). Go to this link: http://www.cdu.hr/frakcija/shop/description.php?br=49

About: This issue of Frakcija does not address a new topic; instead, it is dedicated to the new era on the local scene of performing arts, which is reflected on its own pages. It contains texts written by a new generation of authors who think and write about a wide range of topics related to the performing arts. The first bloc in this issue includes an interview with theatre director Anica Tomic and dramaturge Jelena Kovacic, which has been conducted by Lana Saric, a representative member of the new generation of Frakcija’s collaborators, as well as two contributions on Oliver Frljic’s work.

The second bloc features three contributions to A Glossary of Poetic Terms, which has evolved in the framework of What to Affirm? What to Perform? , a project launched by East Dance Academy. The third and last bloc in this new issue of Frakcija announces the 15th conference of Performance Studies international, which will take place in Zagreb from 24-28 June, 2009 with the topic of Misperformance: Misfiring, Misfitting, Misreading. Texts by Branislav Jakovljevic, Lada Cale Feldman, John Mullarkey, and Matthew Goulish point to various possible directions in the research, analysis, and theoretical reflection of performance within the paradigm of performing studies. The three final texts were originally written as conference papers for Performance Studies international in New York (2007) and Copenhagen (2008).
