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.
