Internationally noted performance artist Eleanor Antin presents here the texts of four arresting works: Before the Revolution, Recollections of My Life with Diaghilev, Who Cares About a Ballerina, and Help, I’m in Seattle. These sharply satirical and occasionally nostalgic works focus on Antin’s character Eleanora Antinova, a ballerina of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Eleanora Antinova is presented as a lost modernist heroine reminiscing about her days at the center of the radical art and classical ballet worlds.
