“JULY MORNING OF JOHAR DUDAYEV”

A black cloth with a monochrome portrait of Johar Dudayev forms the background of the performance. On the floor covered with newspapers there is a scaffold with an axe and some heads of cabbage filled with red paint. The performer dressed in a military uniform and high boots is chopping the cabbage given to him by an assistant dressed in an oriental frock. The scaffold and the floor are getting red. The performer goes on shredding the cabbage. The process is accompanied by the song “July Morning” by Uriah Heep.
