The influence of Pina Bausch and experimental theater…

'American Horror Story: Coven' first teaser unveiled

EDIT: AHA!  YES!  I knew I wasn’t nuts. I knew that AHS teaser image (top) was strikingly familiar. Here is the photo I was mentally comparing it to.  ’Pina bausch, blaubart (performance), 1977.’  (bottom)

That there is a teaser available for AHS Coven is probably old news to most of you, but that’s really not the point of this post.  Doesn’t this image look really, really familiar I am fairly certain that a photo with an uncanny similarity to this has graced my dashboard here on tumblr several times over the past few years.  Sometimes with artist credits, sometimes not.  But I know I have seen something almost exactly like this before - in the past few days even! - and  it is driving me nuts that I cannot find it again.

Do you know the photo that I am talking about?  Eerie black & white (rather like a Jean Cocteau film); a series of women floating/pinned to walls?  If you have any idea what I am going on about, please link me to it.  I know I am not crazy.  

With regards to this particular thing, anyway.

Jacob Böehme. Theosophische Werke. 1890.
Mystic vision from J. Böehme’s Theosophische Werke. It shows a sinful world of creation, surrounded by the Serpent of Eternity, the Uroboros, and characterized by the four elements and the sins corresponding to them; the whole circle relates to the centre, the weeping eye of God, i.e. the point where salvation, symbolized by the dove of the Holy Ghost, may be achieved through compassion and love.

sounds very new-agey…
