In 1965 Robert Rauschenberg and Billy Klüver invited about 30 engineers to participate in an interdisciplinary project mixing avant-garde theater, dance and new technologies. Such artists as John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Öyvind Fahlström, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor and Robert Whitman together with the engineers had to create their performative installations at the Armory Show in New York. The show conducted over 9 nights, each time with the new works by artists and engineers.

Four films about these shows will be shown in Russia for the first time.
