This is a performance that is created once in a generation! A biography of the mother of performance art seen through the eyes of Robert Wilson. The theatre of this visionary American director is like a series of collages of dreams with a musical structure, an architectural arrangement of sounds, words, images and movements.
The production is an evocation of Marina Abramovic's life and artistic career, from her childhood in Serbia to her life as a performance artist. Playing opposite her is the star actor Willem Dafoe, a founding member of The Wooster Group and famous for his impressive film career. You will hear original and traditional music, sung live in the typical falsetto voice of Antony Hegarty (Antony & The Johnsons). 'Anthony brings a lyricism which, in conjunction with Bob Wilson and Marina Abramovic, makes this production a real opera,' says Gerard Mortier, director of the Madrid Opera, who was one of the initiators of this production.
