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.
