Dada, it's been good to know you

On February 5th  1916, Hugo Ball and Emmy Hennings began a series of cabarets in a bar in Zurich. The odd collections of poems composed of sounds, simultaneous readings etc., became wilder and wilder until the bar was closed down by public demand on June 26th of that year.  But the group of players had started what they would call the Dada movement.
