Michael Smith is a performance artist/producer/performer and now a professor at a university. In the late 1980’s he hosted and performed in his MIKE’S TALENT SHOW. It was hosted at The Bottom Line and for a short time at Caroline’s at South Street Seaport.

(Produced by Steve Paul)

During this time he had many amazing performers/writers/eccentric acts on his stage. Eric Bogosian was working on his show SEX DRUGS AND ROCK n’ ROLL. Here he is performing a segment titled ‘DIRT’. In my book IN/SIGHTS he wrote a few paragraphs(quite a few!) to accompany this photograph. Here is a brief excerpt.

“This is a picture of me performing a segment entitled “Dirt” of the new solo I’ve been working on called SEX, DRUGS, AND ROCK n’ ROLL,

With this work. like the other solos that I have done, I’m working  in segments which I hope form a collage that becomes a meditation on a subject. In this case, the subject at hand is the phrase Sex, Drugs, and Rock n’ Roll and all it implies about a crazed over-the-top, high speed world that we live in and “what’s so desirable about that anyway?”
