Manifesto for a new kind of critcism for Critical Stages, the journal of the International Association of Theatre Critics

Essay (Aesthetica Magazine, 2010)

“Brisley describes performance as a departure from the ‘ordinary social self’, and gaining ‘a sense of identity with the audience’ that is neither social, nor intimate. His works are not about establishing a connectionwith the audience. Rather, he becomes a mirror, reflecting back the social structures that exist within them, sending them out into the world to change it.”

“Veronica Brovall's sculptures are born into a wasteland stuffed with dead-ends. Rejecting the invitation to disentangle those them, she harvests them. Necessarily, her materials are familiar, domestic and manufactured. Assembling them, she disengages them from their present forms – tyre, chair, plaster bandage – to elicit their natural origins – oil, metal ore, earth – and reveal a secret geology of experience.” Essay commission
