WORKS TO BE DISCUSSED:

PARADE - features music by Erik Satie and a one-act scenario by Jean Cocteau. The ballet was originally composed for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and premiered on May 18, 1917 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris with costumes and sets designed by Pablo Picasso and choreography by Léonide Massine. See its 100 year anniversary performance April 30 with costumes by Francisco Moreno!

391 - the title of a Spanish language Dadaist literary magazine founded by Francis Picabia, in publication from 1917 to 1924. It will feature a new score by composer and SYZYGY Director, Lane Harder and choreography by Artistic Director, Emilie Skinner.

IONISATION - (1929-31) was writen by Edgard Varèse for 13 unpitched percussion instruments. It was among the first concert pieces written for percussion ensembles.

BALLET MECANIQUE - originally writen in 1924 by George Antheil for a silent Dadaist art film by Dudley Murphy and Fernand Léger, which ended up as a failed collaboration. Antheil revised the score in 1953 - the version we are using for our performance on April 30.
