In May 1972 Matta-Clark placed an industrial container between 98 and 112 Greene Street in New York's SoHo neighbourhood. He collected discarded doors and pieces of wood to transform the container into an open architecture in which a series of activities such as dance performances could take place. This documentary records the opening day with performances by Tina Girouard, [Keith Sonnier]( and other friends. Because on that day it suddenly started to rain umbrellas were used to create an improvised roof.
