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

Crises, eyeSpace 20 [and] CRWDSPCR( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the dance detail on the Merce Cunningham Trust website: "eyeSpace existed in three different versions: one of twenty minutes' duration, and two of forty minutes. The dance in the 20-minute version comprised three sections: a quartet, a series of three trios of which the first two overlapped, and a duet. Mikel Rouse's score incorporated the use of iPod Shuffle mp3 players and an environmental soundscape performed live by one or two musicians, projected throughout the theater. Members of the audience could listen to the music on iPods (available on loan) or, if they preferred, to the ambient sound component (without headphones). Henry Samelson's décor backdrop suggested an imaginary landscape painted in bright colors. The costumes were unitards in various shades of blue. A fourth version of the dance combined the choreography and Samelson décor of eyeSpace 20' with both the Behrman and Lockwood scores of eyeSpace 40'. This version was performed only once at Brown Theatre, Kentucky Center, Louisville, KY on 23 March 2007."

Interscape( Visual )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1954, Robert Rauschenberg became the Resident Designer to the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, a position he held for ten years. During that time these friends and collaborators, along with the musician John Cage, created some of the most iconoclastic artworks of the 20th century. This three-DVD set showcases these great artists' work, along with the work of another, filmmaker Charles Atlas. The DVDs are accompanied by an illustrated essay by Bonnie Brooks. Charles Atlas has directed and collaborated on over 35 film or video projects with Merce Cunningham and served as the company's filmmaker-in-residence for ten years (1974-1983). The three films in this collection showcase Atlas's direction and editing of films and include the 2003 revival of Suite for Five, the 1999 revival of Summerspace, and the original cast of Interscape in 2000. Interscape explores the transitions between darkness and light, stillness and exertion, and silence and sound. A detailed and beautifully rendered work, Interscape showcases the essence of the artists Cage, Cunningham and Rauschenberg
