62. radiOM.org - MACHUNAS: A Performance Oratorio in Four Colors [0.490% Popularity: 0.00000]
MACHUNAS: A Performance Oratorio in Four Colors View Item Type: Video Duration: 144 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Frank Oteri The story of “MACHUNAS” is an emblem of the end of twentieth century culture, in all its tragedy, irony, delusions and immense vitality. It’s inspired by and based on four key episodes in the life and death of George Maciunas, an architect, artist, activist and founder of the Fluxus art movement, the last avant-garde utopia of the modern era. His name is misspelled on purpose, both due to phonetic considerations and the desire to separate this story from any accurate description of his life. The four acts of “MACHUNAS” are divided into Yellow, Green, Red, Blue, and each act has 9 parts. “MACHUNAS “ begins in Yellow, narrating the days of a young child in the old Lithuania that’s about to be extinguished by the Nazis and Soviets and transitions into Green through the story of a teenager strangely out of place and time in an American-controlled refugee camp in Germany. Representi...
