Audience Reviews for Inside Rooms: 26 Bathrooms, London & Oxfordshire, 1985

Another showcase for Greenaway's wit, eccentricity and obsessive numbering. The title is self-explanatory: 26 bathrooms, 26 letters, in roughly 26 minutes. Greenaway demystifies the most private of rooms with a number of subjects discussing the history, aesthetics and philosophy of bathrooms. Greenaway's compulsive ordering creates a sense of anticipation and also serves to highlight the differences more than the similarities. Another fun and unusual piece, with another terrific Nyman score.
