Beschreibung

Napoli, PAN, 31 marzo - 1 maggio 2006. Testo Italiano e Inglese. Milano, 2006; br., pp. 120, 42 ill. col., 22 ill. b/n, cm 23x29. (Arte Contemporanea). The performance-drama, the installation and this book of THE CHILDREN OF URANIUM are based on the verities of the atomic table from 1 to 92, from Hydrogen to Uranium. And with Uranium, and the advent of nuclear fission and the atomic bomb, the control and command of all the elements appears suddenly to be possible. How has this come about, who is responsible and how do we argue those responsibilities? There is a list of eight contestants who might give us an answer. They are Isaac Newton who could be said to have founded modern science, Joseph Smith, Mormon Founder, who searched and dug for the ultimate American treasure, which turned out to be uranium, Marie Curie, martyr to the powers of radiation, Albert Einstein, self-evident prophet of relativity, Robert Oppenheimer, guilt-struck manufacturer of the atomic bomb who was castigated by a xenophobic public for his conscience and compassion, Nikita Kruschev, Soviet leader responsible for making us all understand the real possibilities of atomic destruction, Mikhail Gorbachov, last Communist leader of Soviet Russia who defused East-West Détente, and the President of the United States of America, George W. Bush, whose self-righteous belligerence may threaten us all, all over again. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 1209150

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The hundredth anniversary of Einstein's discovery of the theory of relativity, the fiftieth anniversary of Einstein's death and the sixtieth anniversary of the dropping of the Hiroshima bomb inspired filmmaker Peter Greenaway and theater director Saskia Boddeke to create a multimedia spectacle that deals with the discovery, development, fears and tyranny of nuclear power. For The Children of Uranium, Greenaway has created an installation based on the 92 elements of the periodic table, a scenography with original music by Andrea Liberovici, for a series of performances dedicated to Isaac Newton, founder of modern science; Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon religion, who was looking for gold and instead found uranium; Madame Curie, victim of the powers of radiation; Einstein, who discovered relativity; Oppenheimer, who developed the atomic bomb; Khrushchev, corroder of Stalin's myth and enemy of Kennedy; Gorbachev, the Communist leader who defused the bomb; and George W. Bush. The book is more than a simple collection of texts and photos. Based on the imagery and the structure of the performance, it is another component of the project as a whole. Designed and conceptualized by Greenaway, it includes biographies of the major characters, the complete libretto and photographs and drawings associated with the performance.
