From Chapter 7: Dance

Dance Report

in the old east

there was a dance in which young girls

at the age of 12 of 13 wore special

intoxicating flowers inducing them to sleep

while standing. the girls went on

standing for hours while people

watched and appreciated the

delicate swaying of the

bodies.

From Chapter 6: Film

FILM SCRIPT 5

Ask the audience the following:

1) not to look at Rock Hudson but only Doris Day.

2) not to look at any round objects but only square

and angled objects -- if you look at a round object

watch it until it becomes square and angled.

3) not to look at blue but only red -- if blue comes

out close eyes or do something so you do not see,

if you saw it, then make believe that you have not seen

it, or punish yourself.

-- from SIX FILM SCRIPTS BY YOKO ONO, Tokyo,
