Work: Pavane [Interview]

Identifier: WORK.1965.0013
Creation Date: 1965
Description: When it was first performed-- at La MaMa, in April of 1965 -- this work was called "Pavane." But when Jean-Claude van Itallie combined this work with two others ("Motel" [formerly "America Hurrah"] and "TV") to make an evening-length show for the Pocket Theater (1966-1968), he changed the name of this piece to "Interview."

"'Pavane' is a game of verbal chairs which opens up into fragmentary scenes reminiscent of actors' improvisations."
