#171 Philip Glass

Philip Glass (b. 1937, USA)
Satyagraha, 1980

Here performed by Folkoperan in Stockholm

I like the repetitive sound.
Singing in Sanskrit or merging opera with circus is also pretty cool, but that’s kinda beyond the point here.

#169 Stefan Peterson

Stefan Peterson (Sweden)
Dancing with myself, 2016

He wants to convince his wife that he’s not just a boring office guy, so he goes dancing naked in the woods taking pictures of himself.

Such a lovely non sequitur and a very productive way to enact something with very economic means, also exploring body movement, odd locations, sound and its absence, still and moving image – a lot of components that I am also trying to combine.

#167 Antony Hamilton

Antony Hamilton (Australia)
Token Armies, 2019

Chunky Moves, Melbourne

Dance expanded.
Humans. Horse. Dog. Flowers. Props. Sounds. Lights. Ponchos. Audience.

Inspiring overriding of disciplinary boundaries.
Inspiring expansion of “what a dance (performance) could be”.
Inspiring volume of the space where there is no optimal vantage point from where you could see it all all the time – which ties into my current project on perspective.

#166 Trisha Brown

Trisha Brown (b. 1936, USA – d. 2017)
It’s a Draw, 2002

Dance as a drawing, drawing as a dance.

Very related to my earlier project “Imperfect Man as Perfect Measure”, but I am always curious about mixing media and ways how one type of practice can render work traditionally attributed to another kind of practice. Blurring of the boundaries.

#163 Nick Cave

Nick Cave (b. 1959, USA)
Soundsuit, 2012

I’ve been looking for more interesting ways to present my sound pieces, the last one ending up in crochet. That kind of makes connection to Cave’s soundsuits – body-related objects referencing sound.
