Adam et Eve; tableau vivant

Man Ray :: Ciné-Sketch; Adam and Eve (Marcel Duchamp and Bronia Perlmutter), 1924. Gelatin silver print, on carte postale, printed in the 1930s. | src Christie’s & Philadelphia Museum of Art (Philamuseum)

In 1924 Francis Picabia asked Bronia to participate in a production, Ciné Sketch, that he and René Clair were putting on after the Relache ballet on New Year’s Eve. Bronia agreed, and she and Marcel Duchamp appeared nude —Duchamp did have a strategically placed fig leaf— in a living tabloid of Lucas Cranach’s Adam and Eve, which Man Ray photographed.

Ciné Sketch (1924) was a theatrical diversion conceived by Francis Picabia and René Clair, in which Marcel Duchamp and the Jewish-Polish model Bronia Perlmutter mime the figures of Adam and Eve in a tableau vivant of the Temptation after a painting by Cranach. Ciné-Sketch was performed only once, at the conclusion of Relache (by Ballets Suédois) at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées on New Year’s Eve 1924.

The New York Public Library hosts a group of around 150 photographs (shot by Vandamm Studio) of the musical The Band Wagon, unfortunately the resolution is very poor as well as the information provided: here is the direct link to them: NYPL/Billy Rose Theater Division/Vandamm theatrical photographs.

The Band Wagon opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theater on June 3rd, 1931, and concluded on January 16th, 1932, running a total of 260 performances. Produced by Max Gordon, with book by Walter Thomson and Howard Dietz, lyrics also by Dietz and music by Arthur Schwartz. Staging and lighting were by Hassard Short, choreography by Albertina Rasch, and scenic design by Albert R. Johnson. The cast included Fred Astaire, Adele Astaire, Helen Broderick, Tilly Losch, John Barker and Frank Morgan (among others). The show introduced for the first time Schwartz-Dietz’s song Dancing in the Dark (danced by Losch).

Structure of the revue: the musical comedy consisted in five sketches and thirteen songs or musical numbers divided in two acts. As far as we are aware, Losch took part in three of the musical numbers: The Flag, The Beggar Waltz (with Fred Astaire) and Dancing in the Dark (with John Barker).
