 TZARA, TRISTAN / DELAUNAY, SONIA (ILLS.):,  Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
TZARA, TRISTAN / DELAUNAY, SONIA (ILLS.):
Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
. Narrow folio portfolio. Size: 21 x 45 cm. As issued on heavy paper. With 51 numbered pages printed on recto only on (17) folded sheets + 2 pages and one blank. Comprising the text of the play "Le coeur gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delanay. Comprising seven theatre costumes by Sonia Delaunay which are colour reproductions of the gouache maquettes made for the performance at Thtre Michel in 1923, two more double page lithographs (one issued as extra title page and one with two costumes) and three lithographed decorations in the text. Original card covers with striking design in black, red and cream. Housed in specially made plexiglas slipcase. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delanuay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and rare work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the renowned Roman born writer and artist who was known for being one of the central figures of the anti-establishment Dada movement. His noted play "Le cur gaz" was first staged as part of the 1921 "Dada Salon" at the Galerie Montaigne in Paris. It was written as a parody of classical drama in the form of an absurd dialogue between characters named after human body parts; mouth, ear, eye, nose, neck and eyebrow (Tzara himself). The second stage production, also titled "Le Cur barbe" was performed at Thtre Michel in July 1923. Sonia Delaunay, the famous Ukrainian-born French artist, designed and costumed the production, creating bright coloured eccentric geometrically-shaped costumes of thick cardboard. The play has been viewed as the final event in the evolution of Dada as a cultural movement.
