Seder Masochism – 5th Day of Urban Dionysia

The Διονύσια τὰ ἀστικά ‘Urban Dionysia’, are the last Dionysian celebrations of the Hellenic lunar calendar. They close the yearly events in boreal spring – austral fall – with other rituals, dances and performances. Each day of the Dionysia, I introduce, with only one sentence, a piece of performance art from anyone in the world, at any moment of history, accessible online, and that I want to share. This includes: theatre, opera, dance, body art and cinema.

The fifth sharing is Nina Paley’s 【Seder Masochism】 a 2018’s animation structured around musical sounds from pop, rock and jazz classics. It is an adaptation of Genesis and Exodus in a rare atmosphere and aesthetics of the pastiche.


Here is the 【list of previous sharings】 for the Urban Dionysia.
