A RINGING GLASS (Rilke), 2009

An event to honour Elisabeth Unsworth  

Turbine Hall, Cockatoo Island, Sydney


As a part of Ken’s extraordinary, extravagant installation/performance/banquet event to honour his late wife Elisabeth, he asked the dancers to ‘create him a present’. He would not supply them with any ideas or props but they had free range to the use of anything they could find in the studio.

Thus Our Kenundrum was created.  It ends with a single lit match and the sound of Happy Birthday from a simple music box to acknowledge Ken’s 78th birthday that very day.
