THINGS I SAW BETWEEN 1-18 JULY 2007

(MOST OF THEM ARE SHORT FILMS)

IN PREFERENTIAL ORDER

1.BERLIN – EXERCISES IN NINE PARTS: DREAMING UNDER WATER OF THINGS AFAR (1975, Rebecca Horn, A+)
http://www.rebecca-horn.de/index_eng.html

This is documentation of eight performances with an epilogue:

1.1 –Touching the walls with both hands simultaneously
1.2 –Blinking
1.3 –Feathers dance on the shoulders
1.4 –Keeping hold of those unfaithful legs
1.5 –Two little fish remember a dance
1.6 –Rooms meet in mirrors
1.7 –Shedding skin between moist tongue leaves
1.8 –Cutting one’s hair with two pairs of scissors simultaneously
–When a woman and her lover lie on one side looking at each other, and she twines her legs around the man’s legs with the window wide open, it is the oasis
