Anthony Howell

Waterfall 9

Saturday 15 September 2001

First performed at the Hayward Gallery, London in 1977, Ikon re-presented Waterfall 9, devised by Anthony Howell and performed by the Theatre of New Mistakes, as part of Birmingham’s Artsfest. The fusion of horizontal and vertical movement around a tower of tables and chairs resulted in a stunning visual effect. It was accompanied by the performers’ systematic chanting of a personalised BBC shipping forecast and the sound of water being poured up and down, from cup to cup, poetically evoking ideas of a waterfall.
