Deafman glance a work for television by Robert Wilson( Visual )

3 editions published between 1981 and 2004 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This haunting work tells a stark and stylized story of murder, using time and space, light and movement, and isolated sound in place of spoken words. The ritualistic action is both dreamlike and sinister. A somber, menacing woman washes white dishes and a gleaming carving knife, and then slowly attacks first one yong boy and then another

A letter for Queen Victoria an opera in four acts[--studio recording] by Robert Wilson( Recording )

3 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Letter for Queen Victoria is Wilson's deepest exploration of a world opened up to him by Christopher Knowles, an autistic boy whom he met in 1973 and immediately began to work with. In Queen Victoria, language plays a central role in Wilson's work for the first time: a language of non sequiturs, of commonplace utterances, of sheer vocal sound. Queen Victoria is also the first Wilson play to feature a tightly integrated musical score, a remarkable chamber piece written by Alan Lloyd for string quartet."?robertwilson.com
Medea in prologue and five acts[--Washington open rehearsal 1981-02-28] by Robert Wilson( Recording )

2 editions published in 1981 and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life and times of Joseph Stalin an opera( Visual )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This all-night performance was a final grand statement of Wilson's work with his original ensemble, the Byrd Hoffman School of Byrds. Incorporating scenes from The king of Spain, The life and times of Sigmund Freud, Deafman glance, [Program prologue now] and KA Mountain, Wilson devised a remarkable structure in which the play's first three acts subtly mirrored its last three acts, and its central act (the fourth) became a pivot around which the others revolved. The play interweaves surrealistic takes on Stalin's life with other dream-like renderings of life in the twentieth century, all presented within the elaborate stage artifice of the Victorian age." -- robertwilson.com

Deafman glance [--excerpts]( Visual )

3 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une femme noire de dos fait face à une fenêtre. Elle nettoie de la vaisselle propre, blanche. Par des gestes d'une précision maniaque, elle remplit un verre de lait. Très lentement, elle franchit un couloir qui semble interminable. Un enfant lit sur une chaise dans le coin d'une pièce, la femme lui tend le verre de lait. Mécaniquement, elle effectue le chemin inverse. La scène se réitère au même rythme, mais la femme vêtue dʹune robe sombre tient un couteau. Sans hystérie aucune, avec la même minutie, elle poignarde lʹenfant. L'histoire, avec la même sérénité, va être reconduite sur un autre enfant à lʹétage de la maison. Tout le sujet de Deafman Glance est dans son traitement élaboré, de l'élégance du cadrage au raffinement du rythme en passant par la sobriété de la couleur. La composition de l'image garde la trace d'une recherche picturale, succession de tableaux en mouvement. Les personnages sont muets, le son des objets est amplifié. Cette amplification sonore de gestes anodins crée une atmosphère teintée de surréalisme, sensation accentuée par la répétition opiniâtre des actes de la femme
