In June Kelly, Brian and I are heading to Toronto to see another Robert Wilson production, this time it’s “The Life and Death of Maria Abramovic.” It stars Maria is two roles, Willem Defoe as the narrator. Antony (of the Johnson’s) does the music and also stars in it.
Abramovic describes herself as the “grandmother of performance art” and she has certainly challenged our notions of art, personal space and involvement.
I have to say that although it’s November I already can’t wait for June.
Some images from the production.
