Robert Wilson, KOOL--dancing in my mind : Works & process at the Guggenheim( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

KOOL, dancing in my mind is "a performance/portrait of choreographer and dancer Suzushi Hanayagi by Robert Wilson, Carla Blank and Richard Rutkowski"--Program notes. The project was commissioned to accompany the exhibition The third mind: American artists contemplate Asia, 1860-1989 at the Guggenheim Museum. The performance is introduced by a conversation between Alexandra Munroe and Robert Wilson. Wilson speaks about how he first met Suzushi Hanayagi, a Japanese dancer who performed both traditional and avant-garde dance; about their first collaboration, The CIVIL warS; their common interests, including abstraction and the purity of movement. Wilson describes the origins of the project KOOL, which began when he visited Hanayagi in Osaka, Japan, when she was sufferering from advanced Alzheimer's disease. Wilson created a video of Hanayagi's face, hands and feet, which accompanies the live performance, along with archival video footage of performances by Hanayagi. The sound score includes music written by David Byrne for The knee plays, and the text of letters, writings and interviews with Hanayagi, read by others. Wilson explains the significance of the project's title. A complete performance of the piece follows
THE DAYS BEFORE : death, destruction & detroit III [--stage B workshop]( Visual )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A project book [was] issued from the first [Phase A 1996] workshop, containing a dense collection of visual imagery, found texts, historical and fictional narratives, in addition to Robert Wilson's ideas for stage design. The book was then the basis for the staging of 12 scenes, which took place in the Phase B workshop. For the conception of each scene, basic situations recreating apocalyptic histories and myths were used for a performance ensemble of Watermill participants to choreograph an abstract layer of formal movement. The resulting arrangement of scenes corresponded to outlines for stage action, which was carefully recorded by a team of assistant directors and dramaturgs. A second production book presented more specific models for stage design, a breakdown of scenes, and a condensed body of texts and visuals that provided suggestions for an additional layer of film, video, and slide projections. Directions with regard to text or sound were as-of-yet undecided."--New York State Theatre world premiere program
