Idea Code 14270

The outcome of an extensive research project conducted by Marie de Brugerolle into the 2011 restaging of Guy de Cointet’s ‘Five Sisters’, which took place as part of the Performance in Residence programme of ‘If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want to be Part of your Revolution’, this book reflects the questions that emerged around the meaning, sources and context of the original performance and its reiteration. The play is noteworthy for its presentation of a shift in the artist’s attention to the emotional quality of objects towards light and colour. With contributions by Snejanka Mihaylova and Elizabeth Orr, plus an annotated interview with the performers.
