Musicircus at the Onassis Cultural Centre

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy Musicircus, a very special tribute to John Cage hosted at the Onassis Cultural Centre on November 24, 2012.

In the nineteen sixties, John Cage presented Musicircus and works that mirror its logic and hinge on the multiple nature of the audience’s aesthetic experience: music, images and performances in a pre-defined space and time.

Musicircus vary from simply inviting musicians and artists to take part in an event without a lot of rules, to composing detailed works intended to coexist relatively freely and to share the same starting point, subject-matter or technique. A single element (auditory or not) can often help articulate a performance.

In the Onassis Cultural Centre’s tribute, this role is played by Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse), a 344- minute work without pauses recorded by Cage himself. Its main theme: Cage and his work in music, the visual arts, theatre and literature.

Musicircus will take place over six hours in various parts of the OCC; the audience will be free to wander the building freely and enjoy this unique musical experience.
