Performance artist Danielle Georgiou will be staging a new, site-specific piece, I hate it when a book smells bad, in the architectural installation, Post Communiqué by HOMECOMING! COMMITTEE at the Dallas Museum of Art.

Based on Antonin Artaud’s ideas that “cruelty leads to a believable reality” and the foundational concepts of avant-garde performance put forth by Trisha Brown (as well as Merce Cunningham, Yvonne Rainer, Laurie Anderson, et al.)—that it can be divorced from music, that movement can reflect the dancer’s internal rhythms, and that it doesn’t need a stage to happen—I hate it when a book smells bad deals with the idea of intellectual appropriation and the resulting consequences.
