Leonard Cohen Animation: Dude Ascending A Staircase – Featuring Perla Batalla & Julie Christensen

OK, the titular Dude Ascending A Staircase is a cheap pun based on Marcel Duchamp’s modernist classic, Nude Descending a Staircase. So, give me a break – Leonard, Perla, & Julie have created their own iconic image – and theirs is animated.

In this version, Leonard Cohen, Perla Batalla, & Julie Christensen mount a staircase arm in arm in arm during the Feb 13, 1989 Night Music Show. (See “Who By Fire” By Leonard Cohen & Sonny Rollins, “Tower Of Song,” & More – The Complete Feb 13, 1989 Night Music Show)
