Happy 2022!

The transition to a new year is an agreed turning point - people have agreed to count the time in this way, and now we respect the transition. People from the theater world are counting years by seasons, and the Mladi Levi festival that happened in August seems to has happened already a year ago, because now we are in the preparation for the new one! Some transitions are not agreed, they surprise us, they come at the wrong time, they overtake us - but we still have to respect them. We wish you to find your way in all the new circumstances.

Muanis Sinanović already wrote about the performance and captured the unusual situation in which it took place: The aim of Criterion is to reflect on the Old Power Station’s programme, which is currently nonexistent. Since we want to keep the medium alive and offering work opportunities, we invite you to write, taking into account the following three subject areas: Theatre is moving online – many theatres are currently offering their production online. What does this mean for the future of the art that is so profoundly marked by its ephemerality, live presence, physicality? What does this mean in terms of evaluation of such works?Reviews of online performances performed in the Old Power Station or produced by Bunker – we are currently publishing our production online; you are invited to write about the performances, e.g. about the Lyrical Minutes in the City phenomenon, performances by Beton Ltd., etc., or…
