Sirens of Aquarius

Elyakim (Peter) Taussig

1986, 21:50 minutes, colour, English


An astrological dance - ritual performed in a ruin overlooking a river.
The tape documents the creation of an extraordinary work in which the performers' movements are accurate representations of a twelve month astrological cycle.
The tape presents astrology not as a method for getting answers, but rather as a disipline for raising basic questions.
