i love how picasso incorporated the set into the actual costumes.

Quote:
Cocteau's and Satie's "Parade" anticipated Surrealism proper only by a few years. The term "surrealism" was coined by Apollinaire in the Preface to his earlier play, "The Breasts of Tiresias." "I have invented," wrote Apollinaire, "the adjective surrealist ... which defines fairly well a tendency in art" to free the arts and life from the strangulating logic of cause and effect. The photograph on the left indicates the First Manager, dressed in a ten-foot high cubist costume; the one on the right represents the American Manager, dressed as a skyscraper. Satie's music utilized "musical" instruments such as typewriters, sirens, and airplane propellers.
