Untitled Performance Program or Brochure.

Untitled and unpaginated program or brochure, possibly from a dance performance or festival, featuring a black-and-white cover image of Stuyf and Edinoff with one of the spheres from Stuyf's contemporary ballet "Mutations", an excerpt from a poem by Erik Satie, program of personnel involved in the happening or performance, an essay by Dick Hillenius titled "De Toepassing van Onzekerheid", a 14-page "Double Monologue" between two characters or figures named as only "PP" and "MAN", and a final short essay, also by Hillenius, titled "World Within World". Not illustrated. 4to. Original side-stapled photo-illustrated wrpps. Amsterdam (Stichting Eigentijdse Dans/S.E.D.) n.d. (circa 1970).

Stuyf founded the Stichting Eigentijdse Dans (Contemporary Dance Foundation) in 1962 to produce and present performance of post-modern dance. Due to a lack of funding, the foundation ceased activity in 1974.
It is not quite clear what performance or happening this brochure might be a program for. Stuyf and his wife, dancer Ellen Edinoff, collaborated many times during their careers. However, the cover photograph is for their dance piece, Mutations. A Dutch theater encyclopedia has a listing for a performance of "Mutations I-III", produced by the Stichting Eigentijdse Dans (S.E.D.) on December 13, 1970, and under the affiliated personnel lists choreography by Stuyf, photography by Maria Austria, and music by Bob Dylan and Erik Satie. These line up with the program of personnel included within the brochure, although there are many additional names not listed. As of September 2021, we could find no records for this brochure through OCLC.
