With choreographers Linda K. Johnson, Cydney Wilkes, Linda Austin, and Tere Mathern and writer Randy Gragg. In 1971, Portland christened a new urban park that The New York Times architectural critic Ada Louise Huxtable heralded as the most important urban space since the Renaissance. Called Forecourt Fountain (later renamed Ira Keller Fountain), it was part of a sequence of Portland plazas that combined water, sculptural form, and public space in ways never before attempted in a city. Yet the plazas were merely one outgrowth of the daring experiments in movement, sound, and space being conducted by landscape architect Lawrence Halprin; his wife, the legendary choreographer Anna Halprin; and radical musical composers such as Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveros, Lamont Young, and Morton Subotnick. Third Angle New Music Ensemble, the Northwests premier presenter of contemporary music, along with some of Portlands most accomplished choreographers, will celebrate the plazas and the artistic milieu from which they emerged. Third Angle will play some of the Minimalist music pioneered by the composers in the Halprins circle as the choreographers explore Anna Halprins philosophy and her intense blend of movement with social and personal consciousness often cited as the beginning of postmodernism in dance. We were trying to invent new languages of dance, music, and architecture, Lawrence Halprin recalls of the time. So, too, will City Dance attempt a new kind of celebration of ...

MUSIC BY EL INTRUSO - EL RASTRO MADRID - NUNCA FUE TAN HERMOSA LA BASURA - JOSÉ LUIS PARDO (12) DE ESTA MANERA SE HA CONSEGUIDO A LA VEZ MANTENER LA SITUACIÓN MODERNA (A SABER, LA "INMENSA ACUMULACIÓN DE BASURAS") Y REEDITAR LA UTOPÍA NO MENOS MODERNA DE UN MUNDO SIN BASURAS, QUE AHORA HA DE ENTENDERSE COMO UN MUNDO EN PERMANENTE RECICLAJE Y SIN PÉRDIDAS (TAL ES LA COSMOVISIÓN DEL PARADIGMA-BASURA O PARADIGMA DE LA BASURA) Y, POR LO TANTO, DE UN MUNDO EN EL CUAL TODO (Y TODOS) LLEGA INMEDIATAMENTE A SU DESTINO Y ADQUIERE INMEDIATAMENTE UNO NUEVO. NO SE PUEDE DECIR DE MANERA MÁS CLARA: ALLÍ DONDE NADA ES BASURA, TODO LO ES. Y ES EL MISMO MARC AUGÉ QUIEN SE HA DADO CUENTA DE QUE, DE SEGUIR ASÍ LAS COSAS, NUESTRA CIVILIZACIÓN SERÁ LA PRIMERA DEL MUNDO QUE NO DEJE TRAS DE SÍ ESA CLASE ESPECIAL DE BASURA HISTÓRICA QUE SON LAS RUINAS. LA CIUDAD GENÉRICA (LA CIUDAD-BASURA) NO DEJA RUINAS PORQUE, CUANDO UN EDIFICIO ENTRA EN ESTADO DE OBSOLESCENCIA, SE PUEDE RECONFIGURAR ENTERAMENTE PARA UN NUEVO USO, DEL MISMO MODO QUE UNA EMPRESA (SI QUIERE SER UNA GENUINA EMPRESA-BASURA) DEBE PODER SOMETERSE EN CUALQUIER MOMENTO A UN PROCESO DE RE-ENGINEERING Y QUE LA MANO DE OBRA (O SEA, LA CLASE-BASURA) DEBE PERMANECER EN UN ESTADO DE LONGLIFE EDUCATION. RICHARD SENNETT LO HA EXPLICADO AÚN MEJOR: «LA ESTANDARIZACIÓN DEL ENTORNO DERIVA DE LA ECONOMÍA DE LO EFÍMERO, Y LA ESTANDARIZACIÓN PRODUCE INDIFERENCIA. QUIZÁ PUEDA ACLARAR ESTA TESIS MEDIANTE UNA EXPERIENCIA PERSONAL. HACE UNOS POCOS AÑOS ...
