Performance Studio with Margarita Gluzberg
Margarita Gluzberg at The Performance Studio - Shadows on the Pavement
Shadows on the Pavement follows the paths of Moscow ‘delinquents’ who failed to adopt the Soviet way of life. It features the Rock On Bones phenomenon - a name given to illicit recordings of Western pop music, made from discarded medical x-rays and sold on street corners.
In 1959, a Dior catwalk show takes place in Moscow, and the photographer Howard Sochurek shoots the models for Life magazine. Later in life he becomes interested in x-rays and other forms of medical imaging and writes a book on the subject.
Shadows on the Pavement is Margarita Gluzberg's new performance-lecture about historical cultural contamination and its future transmissions.
Margarita Gluzberg's participation in The Performance Studio 2016 programme is supported by the Wellcome Trust.
