"When you start working, everybody is in your studio - the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas - all are there. But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you are lucky, even you leave." -John Cage

Ugh, totally love this. Offset printed poster designed by Tsuguya Inoue in 1997 for Merce Cunningham Dance Company tour of Scenario (1997) and featuring dancer dressed in Rei Kawakubo’s (Comme des Garçons) “Lumps and Bumps” costumes for the performances. So. Cool.

The framed poster was just hung today in one of the office hallways at the Walker. Lucky to pass by this everyday.

コンタクトマイクに覆われた会場。
トイレ内の換気扇の音すら意図し留置された通奏低音に聴こえる不思議。
あとわずかですので、みなさま是非とも芦屋まで。。

Brutal jet lag, so ended up watching old episodes of Top of the Pops through the night. Here’s a clip from 1981 of the regular dance troupe, Legs & Co interpreting Talking Heads’ ‘Once in a Lifetime’. Legs & Co were an indirect descendent of the great Pans People, barely surviving into the era of video. Often the choreographic interpretation of the song (by Flick Colby) established an independent reading or image, in the absence of the identity of the performer. Inconceivable today. The producers at TOTP must have been happy with the ambitious montage for this one, because it was screened a couple of times. The look is retro-future, with a nod to Oskar Schlemmer, while the choreography, unusually for Colby, sees each dancer working independent shapes, very much in the style of Merce Cunningham.
