Richard Foreman (USA,1976)
Richard Foreman, NYC avant-garde dramatist whose Ontological Hysteric Theater has for years been the focus of some of the most important performance work of the '70s, has produced two video works.
Out of the Body Travel is "about a woman who finds herself in a library surrounded by the relics of Western culture... Created for The American Dance Festival in 1976, Out of the Body Travel... separates the layers of interaction that involve time, space, language, feelings, self and non-self, layers that surround and stimulate one's experience of learning and being."

"City Archives examines through clever word-play the uncertainty we have of any connections between events. By emphasizing the image and phrase of the 'gap' with buzzers, bells, and sharply conducted dialogue, the flow of time is frustratingly interrupted. When the interruptions become rhythmic, the viewer feels irresistibly drawn to the screen."
Produced by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. (1978, 28-1/2 mins, color, Tape from Electronic Arts Intermix)
