“For the last twenty years neither matter nor space nor time has been what it was from time immemorial. We must expect great innovations to transform the entire technique of the arts, thereby affecting artistic invention itself and perhaps even bringing about an amazing change in our very notion of art.”

Very special thanks to The Watermill Center & Robert Wilson

 

 

The Laboratory for Performance – Watermill Center is considered by some as one of the most ambitious works of art by Robert Wilson. For the very first time in 2014, Robert Wilson has authorised a cinematographic crew to film the exceptional creative ferment of the Summer Program. The hundreds of hours of raw footage, including interviews with Robert Wilson, the invited artists and various participants, testimonies from rehearsals and images from the very heart of the amazing artistic environment – the excrescence of Robert Wilson’s brain in the world – will mutually inform each other to give birth to a unique document on the relentless creative flurry, underlying all Robert Wilson’s works. A tribute and an ideal sounding board to the immense opus magnum of Bob Wilson.
