  • Marcel Duchamp: tant Donns

  • Aug 14, 2009 to Nov 29, 2009
  • Location: Philadelphia, USA Philadelphia Museum of Art
  • Description: tant Donns, Duchamps last major work, has been described by Jasper Johns as é’“the strangest work of art in any museum. What at first looks like an boarded-up wooden door is actually a tableau visible only through two peep holes, which reveal a half-hidden naked woman in a landscape. Duchamp worked on the piece in secret for 20 years, while even his friends thought he had given up his art, and it was only revealed to the public when it was posthumously installed in the museum. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its first display, and in memory of the late director Anne dHarnoncourt, who oversaw the original installation as a 25-year-old assistant, the museum has organised this show of 80 studies, photographs, erotic objects and other documents.

Sept. 20 & 27 • 3:00pmExperience Josephine Baker’s "La Revue Nègre" in Jérôme Savary’s music theater extravaganza direct from the capitals of Europe. When Josephine Baker found fame in Paris by performing her scandalous "La Revue Nègre", she raised eyebrows as well as passions.Savary begins his show in a New Orleans devastated by Katrina as a French producer searches for the perfect Josephine with whom to re-create the legendary revue. As the auditions roll out, Savary conjures the history of black music in America’s South as a counterpoint to Baker’s story of racial conflict. Once the perfect Josephine is cast, "La Revue Nègre" is staged as a spectacular event starring Nicolle Rochelle, a Montclair, New Jersey native! From the show’s divine master of ceremonies to the brilliant tap dancers, to a poignant blues songs to the Bourbon Street band; Looking for Josephine is an incomparable event!“A splas

Filled with understated movement evocative of yet not imitative of Nijinsky's iconic faun, it floated contemplatively on the music of Debussy and the haunting Lieder of Gustave Mahler. "- LondondanceIn a one-time-only afternoon performance, Danspace Project and the French Institute Alliance Française's Crossing the Line 2009 festival co-present the U.S. premiere of Raimund Hoghe's L'Après-midi at St. Mark's Church. Using Debussy's L'Après-midi d'un faune, Hoghe, a German-based choreographer and former dramaturge for Pina Bausch, creates a solo for Emmanuel Eggermont, which, according to writer Mary Kate Connolly is "a gradual, subtle collage of history, longing, and a neo-classical appreciation of male beauty unfurled."Hoghe's Boléro Variations will be presented earlier in the week at Dan
