Robert Wilson on Video

A Retrospective of work in theatre, opera, video, film, installation
Nov. 9, 10, 11 and Nov. 17, 18, 19
7:00 pm
Location One, 26 Greene St., NY, NY 10013
For two weekends in November the Soho gallery for performance and new media, Location One, will host a video program of Robert Wilson works in theatre, opera, video, film, and art. The internationally-celebrated theatre and visual artist, Robert Wilson, is also represented in New York this fall with the Giorgio Armani exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum, which he designed, and his Stockholm production of Strindberg's A Dream Play in the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival.

In this wide-ranging video program, which also features documentaries on Wilson's life and work, the artist is highlighted not only as a theatre and opera director and visual artist but also as an actor. Several of his European creations, some little known to American audiences, will also be shown, including the acclamied music theatre work, The Black Rider; his film, La Mort de Molière; German stagings of Gertrude Stein texts, Saints and Singing and Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights. Also part of the program is Memory/Loss which celebrates his Golden Lion Award for Sculpture at the 1993 Venice Biennale.

American contributions include The Making of a Monologue: Robert Wilson's Hamlet, his solo interpretation of the classic, and Hamletmachine, his staging of the Heiner Müller text. Wilson's production of the Stein opera, Four Saints in Three Acts, will also be shown. Robert Wilson & the CIVIL warS chronicles his uncompleted multi-nation project.

This is the first program in New York devoted to an extensive public video presentation of works from Robert Wilson's oeuvre. It has been curated by theatre critic and editor Bonnie Marranca. [NYTW]
