‘Scramble, 1967’

Performance, 2019


A collaboration between artist Reza Aramesh and dancer Joshua Smith connecting two significant events that happened in 1967. Reza Aramesh’s sculpture: Site of the Fall - study of the renaissance garden - Action 180 is a depiction of subjected body sourced from reportage images of the Viet- nam war referring to a particular event that took place at 9:15 am, Sunday 28th May, 1967. Around the same period, Merce Cunningham created a dance piece titled ‘Scramble’ to explore the infinite possibilities of movement that the human body can possess. Reza Aramesh and Joshua Smith will be producing ‘Scramble’ in the presence of Action 180, at Bury Court next to the Gherkin, opening up the dialogue between these two events.
