A short trilogy based on Gerard Malanga’s art and writings. ‘The Unknown Girl’ opens with a bucolic vision on the poet’s desire for younger lovers and unknown experiences. The second part is a plain reading of ‘Some Things To Remember About Tri-X’ (from Malanga’s recent ‘Mythologies of The Heart’). The third, called ‘The Silk Dance’, is a choreography based on the artist’s own movements while silk-screening with Andy Warhol at the Factory, mixed with both excerpts of his own films shot in the 60’s and the personal corporal interpretation of the French dancer and choreographer Nadine Ganase. An Akasic Peeper project.
