Einstein on the beach by Philip Glass( Visual )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dès le début de leur collaboration, Glass et Wilson décidèrent de ne pas apporter d'histoire linéaire à Einstein. Leur objectif était plutôt d'incorporer des symboles liés à la vie d'Einstein, au travers de la mise en scène, des personnages, des textes et de la musique. Par exemple, le premier Knee Play se compose de musique jouée à l'orgue et de nombres répétés par les récitants. Philip Glass explique qu'au départ, ces nombres étaient là simplement pour offrir un texte repère aux récitants, en attendant les textes finaux. Ils furent finalement conservés car ils symbolisaient bien les aspects mathématiques et scientifiques liés à Einstein. Les thèmes développés font référence à la théorie de la relativité, à la théorie des champs de force unifiés, à l'arme nucléaire ou encore à la radio grandes ondes. L'opéra se compose de neuf scènes d'environ vingt minutes séparées par des Knee Play. Cinq d'entre eux structurent l'opéra en quatre actes." (Source : wikipedia.org.)

Körper = [Bodies] by Jörg Jeshel( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in German and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1999 Sasha Waltz started working on her three-piece choreographic cycle about the human body. In "Körper", following up this extraordinary research, she investigates the anatomy and the physical appearance of the human being, relating her dancers' bodies to architecture, science, and history. "S" searches for the origin of life, of Eros, and of sensibility. "noBody" asks about the metaphysical existence of humanity. Körper means bodies. "Körper" engages twelve dancers in a particularly rich variety of movement. Linking architecture and body, Körper asks the questions: What is the body? How is it constructed? The dance analyzes morality, the quest for immortality, and investigates reproduction in the age of genetic manipulation. Sasha Waltz looks at the bodies in everyday situations. She beserves their matter, their nudity, their rhythms. "S" represents the middle section of the "Körper Trilogy" by Sasha Waltz. While sexuality and Eros are all but absent from "Körper" and "noBody", with "S" they constitute central themes."
