Perhaps the world's foremost avant-garde theater artist, Robert Wilson (born 1941) ranges across opera, stage works, lighting design, video and even furniture design in his pursuit of astounding gesamtkunstwerk creations; Susan Sontag wrote of his career that it has "the signature of a major artistic creation. I can't think of any body of work as large or as influential." Among Wilson's numerous eminent collaborators are Tom Waits, William Burroughs and David Byrne. His legendary operatic collaboration with composer Philip Glass, Einstein on the Beach, upended conventions of traditional operatic form, and he has also left his mark on masterworks from The Magic Flute to Pélleas et Melisande. Robert Wilson: From Within celebrates the incredible achievements of this "total artist," from his earliest works to his upcoming work The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic. World-renowned artists, composers, actors, writers, theater directors and curators, from Marina Abramoviic and Laurie Anderson to Philip Glass and Rufus Wainwright, contribute testimonials."
