  • This tape documents a performance by Banana and Gaglione of fourteen sintesi written by Italian Futurists between 1910 and 1920. The research which led to this performance resulted in an expanded repetoire of two Futurist works which they performed across Canada. They see Futurist theatre as forerunners to the contemporary Performance Art scene and to punk aesthetics and attitude.
