Newspapers report that a fistfight erupted among Surrealists during a lecture in 1925, but what were the motives? Artist Shana Lutker reveals her theories in a performative lecture with live acting, piano and 16mm film projection, with actors Jennifer Greer, Bilal Mir and pianist Oscar Bustillo. Based on Shana Lutker’s third chapter on the history of the fistfights of the Surrealists, this multi-media performance tells the story of a fight that broke out 90 years ago, on May 29, 1925, during a lecture about literature. Falling somewhere between a play and a lecture, the story follows the artist’s attempts to decode the motives of the Surrealists who disrupted the event and follows it’s ripples through history. Weaving together Surrealist artworks and writings related to the fistfight’s instigators and witnesses, Lutker’s play will incorporate scenes from Louis Aragon’s Au Pied du Mur (Backs to the Wall), excerpts from Germaine Dulac’s film La Coquille et le Clergyman (The Seashell and the Clergyman), and the music of Arthur Honegger performed live on piano.?
