Alexandra Bachzetsis’s Massacre: Variations on a Theme

MoMA presents Massacre: Variations on a Theme, a major new performance commission by Alexandra Bachzetsis. Comprising choreography for three dancers, a musical composition for two pianos, and video elements, Bachzetsis’s evening-length performance investigates the persistence of popular rituals with a physical and visual vocabulary drawn from classic Northern Soul, Techno dancing, and other traditions.

Organized by Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, with Giampaolo Bianconi, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art, and produced by Lizzie Gorfaine, Performance Producer.

Generous funding for the exhibition is provided by The Modern Women’s Fund.
