AN EARLY EXPERIMENT: VARIATIONS V

“Variations V” (1965) experiments with “intermedia.” Video is integrated into the performance, with projections by Stan VanDerBeek and overlaid TV distortions by Nam June Paik . Twelve sound-sensitive electronic poles dot the stage; sound is triggered by the dancers’ movements and then altered or delayed by the musicians.

MUSICIANS John Cage “Variations V”
DANCERS Merce Cunningham, Carolyn Brown, Barbara Lloyd, Sandra Neels, Albert Reid, Peter Saul, Gus Solomons Jr.

 

Theme: Baskerville 2 by Anders Noren.
