says performing arts must not harm state security
New regulations on the performing arts, including plays and concerts,
ban any activity that harms the state but also restrict government
interference in commercial activities. The new rules, issued by
the State Council or cabinet, also further regulate how foreign
entertainment enterprises can stage shows.
Performances also must not disrupt social order or stability, spread
pornography, superstition or violence, or infringe on the legitimate
rights of citizens, the regulations said. The rules go into effect
on September 1.

boss fired after TV show
FORT LAUDERDALE -- The Broward Art Guild has fired its director,
Susan Buzzi -- not because she hung a graphic caricature involving
President Bush, an Arab sheik and a barrel of oil but apparently,
she says, because she talked about it on TV. Buzzi and Alfred Phillips,
who painted the piece, were among guests on The Daily Show with
Jon Stewart discussing the work. Buzzi was the guild's executive
director and had worked with its gallery for more than 10 years.
She was at the guild's helm when an exhibit titled "Controversy"
sparked a firestorm of commentary, in particular over the suggestive
work depicting President Bush. The painting, which like other artworks
in the exhibit was selected for the gallery by an outside consultant,
was sold after the May exhibit.
