Inspired by de Cointet’s compulsive attraction to language, the performance presents the story of five sisters, who busy themselves with the problems and pleasures of modern life on a Sunday afternoon. Discussions about cosmetic surgeons, exotic locales, and New Age tinctures punctuate the simple stage directions. <i>Five Sisters</i> was first performed in 1982 in Los Angeles at the Barnsdall Park Theatre, and it was the last performance to be staged during the artist’s lifetime. De Cointet collaborated with sculptor Eric Orr (1939–1998), who created the stage, lighting, and sound for the original production. In this new production, the lighting and sound are reconstructed by Elizabeth Orr. The restaging of <i>Five Sisters</i> is the result of research conducted by art historian Marie de Brugerolle, as part of If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part of Your Revolution, a performance residency program in Amsterdam.</p> <p>In addition to <i>Five Sisters,</i> Guy de Cointet’s performance <i>Espahor ledet ko Uluner!</i> will be performed by Jane Zingale. <i>Espahor ledet ko Uluner!</i> is a short monologue that departs from Guy de Cointet’s novel of the same name. The piece presents a succession of apparently everyday references, with different moods, in a language invented by the artist.</p> <p>Performers: Violeta Sanchez, Einat Tuchman, Adva Zakai, and Veridiana Zurita<br> Research and dramaturgy: Marie de Brugerolle, Direction: Jane Zingale<br> Light and sound: Elizabeth Orr, Wardrobe: moniquevanheist</p> <p>Organized by Sabine Breitwieser, Chief Curator, and Ana Janevski, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and Frédérique Bergholtz, Director, If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution.</p> <p>Wednesday, May 9, 2012, 7:00 p.m. <br> Thursday, May 10, 2012, 7:00 p.m.</p></p> </div> <form action="./" class="share"> <a href="#" class="selected" rel="permalink"><small>Permalink</small></a> <a href="#" rel="embed"><small>Embed</small></a> <label id="embed-toggle"> <input type="checkbox" name="embed_toggle" /> <small>Old embed code</small> </label> <br class="clear" /> <input type="text" name="permalink" value="http://www.moma.org/explore/multimedia/videos/226/1134" id="permalink" class="selected copy-paste" /> <input type="text" name="embed" value="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/videos/embed/226/1134&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " data-embed="&lt;object width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;/embed/videos/embed/226/1134&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowFullScreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;wMode&quot; value=&quot;opaque&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowscriptaccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;embed src=&quot;/embed/videos/embed/226/1134&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; allowscriptaccess=&quot;always&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; wmode=&quot;opaque&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;" data-iframe="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/videos/embed/226/1134&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " id="embed" class="copy-paste" /> </form> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div> <!--googleoff: index--> <div id="playlist" class="JS_MediaPlaylist"> <div class="playlist-tabs"> <a href="#playlist" class="first selected" rel="tab-playlist">Playlist</a> <br class="clear" /> </div> <div id="tab-playlist" class="tab selected"> <h3>Special Exhibitions Video: <i>Words in the World</i> (3)</h3> <div class="bottom-border"></div> <ol class="scrollable" > <li> <a href="/explore/multimedia/videos/226/1134" class="media playing" rel="/explore/multimedia/videos/full/226/1134.xml,/momaorg/shared/video_file/video_file/1383/Five_Sisters.mp4?language="> <span class="image"> <img alt="Guy de Cointet. &lt;i&gt;Five Sisters.&lt;/i&gt; 1982, remake 2011.
