Dumb Type Memorandum

"Dumb Type, the artists´ collective that was founded in 1987 in Kyoto is almost unparalleled in its fusion of the body and new media. Both artists and audience are transported to border zones of perception between life and death, inner and outer, image and reality. The group asks the question posed by many Performers in East Asia: is the body a projection space for social, economic and political processes which are written into every individual? Or is the body the last core of resistance of archaically anchored identity in a culture?"

Ballet triadico 1970

Reconstruction of Ballet Tradico from the Margarete Hastings sketches.

Part 1



Part 2


A very interesting website (in French) - an online research website of the work of Oskar Schlemmer at:
A really interesting seminar - Rerunning Ballet Tradico Seminar "the seminar is intended as a space for reflection on the creation stage, particularly on what some call "broad-ranging dance reconstruction" and that we are more interested in the processes that determine results, we have called "rerunning" a term that assumes more open as interpreter of anyone who wants to rerun a past stage work."

From Troika Ranch website

"The development of loopdiver began with a simple idea: to explore the concept of loops, a structure pervasive in culture since the popularization of the computer. We first created a 6-minute long performance that was complete in its own right, with movement, music, video and theatrical lighting; then, using a special software tool, we transformed a videotape of that performance into a 60-minute long choreographic 'score' from which we rigorously generated the live choreography. While the digital materials (video, sound, light) maintain the absolute precision and perfection of the computer, the learned choreography is necessarily imperfect due to human interpretation. When placed together on stage, we see the performers in a constant struggle to adapt to an externally imposed machine rhythm. loopdiver asks the viewer to join in on this simultaneously dreamlike and maddening journey as the performers attempt to escape their prisons of repetition. The meaning of the materials grows and changes as it appears again and again, ultimately challenging us to dive in a break free of our own repetitive and potentially destructive behavior."

Sofia Gubaidulina's "Seven Words" performed in Eurythmy

"Sofia Gubaidulina's "Seven Words" is a composition for cello, bayan, and strings based upon Christ's Seven Last Words on the Cross. This is a section of the composition performed in Eurythmy by the Goetheanum Stage Ensemble. For this beautiful film version, the camera work and editing were by Sam Russell with final production by Hagens Recording Studio. Note: this version presents the music and eurythmy of the original performance, without voice-over." source:
