farewell to ancient evenings #I 1999

Farewell to Ancient Evenings – Music – “Corcomroe” by Davey Spillane and “Symphonie Pastoral” recorded by Jean Luc Herelle”

“Farewell to Ancient Evenings” is a work that is dedicated to the memory of the work of Artemisia Gentileschi – the drawings for the choreographic structures and thence the floor design were grounded on the structures in a group of her paintings. The Sound layer was developed using layering techniques developed by Anthony Mawson and sound sources selected by Ursula Mawson-Raffalt. The movement structures are grounded in “The Focus Point Technique” developed over many years by Ursula Mawson-Raffalt and the presentation frame in methods also developed over many years by Anthony J F Mawson. It was presented in 1999 in Ballhaus Naunynstrasse with support from Ballhaus and Kunstamt Kreuzberg.
