John Cage performs Water Walk


cage.jpg John Cage performing Water Walk on TV game show I've got a secret in 1960, while being set up as something of a freakshow the presenter still goes to great lengths to convince the audience that Cage is 'serious'. Cage handles the occasion with a light touch and a good sense of humour, when the presenter warns Cage that while the audience are nice people ... some of them are going to laugh, is that alright he replies with a winning smile of course I consider laughter preferable to tears.
