Adult Party Games

“Adult Party Games” was originally written by Art Jarvinen in 1970, it was put on by Varispeed Collective as part of a residency at Mt Tremper Arts in 2013. The original piece is a loose collection of piece ideas, some involving people in penguin suits and drilling holes in gongs, dismantling pianos, in Jarvinen’s maximalist style somewhere between Fluxus, Cage, and Kagel.
