Yvonne Rainer's Transition

"....For example, a series of events containing answers to when, where, why, whom, gives way to a series of images, or maybe a single image, which, in its obsessive repetitiveness or prolonged duration or rhythmic predictability or even stillness, becomes disengaged from story and enters this other realm, call it catalogue, demonstration, lyricism, poetry or pure research. The work now floats free of ultimate climax, pot of gold, pay-off, future truth, existing solely in the present..".

As manifestoes have been replaced by electronic mailing lists, you don't hear much about the avant-garde anymore. Sam Renseiw retorts with a short circumstantial choreographic film bout of the last surge of the dance avant-garde. View it here or click on one of the blurry characters obove.
