Text by John Cage, Performed by Robert Wilson
Premiered on August 22, 2012 at the Ruhrtriennale Festival, Jahrhunderthalle, Bochum, Germany
Performed in English.
As a homage to revolutionary composer John Cage, Robert Wilson performs Cage's Lecture on Nothing, one of the central texts of twentieth-century experimental literature. The production has been described as being an "acoustically and visually inspiring approach to the philosophical and poetic text" which Cage based on a complex time length scheme similar to some of his music.
