9 Evenings : Theatre and Engineering

Abstract : Bilingual publication in French and English http://www.fondation-langlois.org/flash/e/index.php?NumPage=571 9 Evenings, Theatre & Engineering is an event organized by E.A.T. in 1966 in New York. A major and pioneering event in the history of the relationship between theatre and technology, as in the history of new media, 9 Evenings is based on the collaboration of 10 artists (David Tudor, John Cage, Yvonne Rainer, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Robert Rauschenberg, Oyvind Fahlstrom, Steve Paxton, Robert Whitman, Lucinda Childs) and about 30 Bell Labs engineers. The research considers the different aspects of the relationship between artists and engineers. It is based on the diagrams published in the program, confronted with visual documents (including video recordings by Alfons Schilling), testimonies (interviews with Yvonne Rainer, Robert Whitman, Deborah Hay and various participants), and various archival collections (including the John Cage collection at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Judson Church archives at NYU). This research was conducted in 2005 as part of the Researcher-in-Residence Program at the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science and Technology in Montreal. The Daniel Langlois Foundation wanted to publish the results of the research on its website. The publication on the web was an opportunity to explore a specific writing for this medium. Fragmented and discursive, this writing is an attempt to articulate and weave short texts, digitized archival documents, images, and interactive animations of diagrams. The website was selected by MIT to be presented on interactive terminals as part of the 9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre & Engineering exhibition in 2006 at the List Visual Arts Center, then in Montreal and Europe.
