Initiated by Lutz-Kinoy and Madison, Rotting Wood: The Dripping Word is a project which explores Terayama’s multifaceted practice. Focused less on historical accuracy, the re-staging of the 1967 play, Kegawa no Marii, seeks to embrace an attitude towards collaboration and communal creativity advocated by Terayama and his Tokyo-based company Tenjou Sajiki.

Lutz-Kinoy and Madison are joined by Berlin-based director Ariel Efraim Ashbel and two of his regular actors, Jessica Gadani and $hubi, the Tokyo-based performance artist Cobra, New York-based performer Ezra Azrieli Holzman, New York-based musicians Stefan Tcherepnin and Veit Laurent Kurz (Steit), San Antonio-based writer William Z Saunders, New York-based artist Hanna Törnudd and fashion label ECKHAUS LATTA.

Alongside the live performance, a small exhibition is installed in an exterior gallery in the MoMA PS1 courtyard featuring documentation of Lutz-Kinoy and Madison’s ongoing research into Terayama’s life and work. This exhibition provides the audience with a broader insight into Terayama’s extended practice and its unfinished ephemeral nature, highlighting creation as an ongoing process.
