1 Have You Been Here Before / 2 No This Is The First Time

  • Troubleyn/Laboratorium 23 Pastorijstraat Antwerpen, Vlaanderen, 2060 Belgium (map)

In an exceptional performance of nearly three hours, director and artist Robert Wilson invites us into his astonishing aesthetic universe. Combining hundreds of striking images from through his prolific career, Wilson provides an intimate self-portrait of his creative process. Mr. Wilson references his landmark original works for the stage such as "Deafman Glance", "A Letter for Queen Victoria", "Einstein on the Beach" (created with composer Philip Glass), "The CIVIL warS", and "The Black Rider", as well as his acclaimed work for the operatic and theatrical repertoire, including his luminous stagings of "Madama Butterfly", "Wagner’s Ring Cycle", "The Magic Flute", Ibsen’s "Peer Gynt" and Heiner Müller’s "Quartett". At the conclusion of the lecture-performance, the audience is invited to explore Mr. Wilson’s ideas further during an informal question-and-answer period.
