Peter Greenaway, director of film classics like The Pillow Book, The Cook The Thief His Wife And Her Lover, Prospero’s books and The Tulse Luper Suitcases, demonstrated in Milan at Hangar Bicocca, as a preview of Mixed Media festival, his first VJ performance.
On music by DJ Serge Dodwell (aka Radar ), ‘VJ’ Greenaway rocked the crowd blending his avantgarde cinematographic imagery (taken from the Tulse Luper Suitcases movie) with the heavy movie score remix by DJ Radar. Mastering the giant touch screen the newborn ‘realtime image conductor’ Greenaway provided a totally new experience to the audience: Live Cinema at its best.
The magnificent VJ debut of Peter Greenaway did not go unnoticed. As “real time image conductor” he finally freed himself from classic cinematographic linearity. With his outstanding cinematographic eye and energetic approach Greenaway won the respect of fellow VJs worldwide and hereby set the pace in the toplevel international VJ scene.
The tremendous succes of this performance made NoTV (in association with 7th Day Foundation) and Peter Greenaway decide to take the performance to a next level, and bring it to the international audience by starting the official tour
