Part of Ever Present: Meaningless Work, Get to Work: Fluxus Scores at the Getty Center








Choreographer: Phoebe Berglund
Sound Composer: Joseph Allan Johnson

Originally published in An Anthology of Chance Operations, Beach Crawl is an early work by Walter De Maria, who would gain renown as a minimalist sculptor and pioneer of monumental earthworks. Presaging those terrestrial experiments, this score instructs one to crawl on their hands and knees while moving three rocks in a circular pattern down a sandy stretch of beach.

In the hands of the choreographer Phoebe Berglund, these instructions are transformed into a new work of dance. Her dancers’ crawl is punctuated with moments of meditation and tender contact, unfolding in concert with the natural elements and the etherial sonic atmosphere performed by composer Joseph Allan Johnson.
