Frida Parmeggiani : Kostüm Abstraktionen = Figurazioni tessili = textile artefacts by Elfriede Jelinek( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and Multiple languages and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows a series of multipart costume abstractions which explore the complex relationship between nature, space, volume and textiles. For the first time in her career, Parmeggiani is working without storyline or actors and is thus able to use her minimalistic forms in a static, sculptural way. Fine fabrics in combination with metal elements or objects culled from nature produce stylistically rigorous, aesthetic costume installations. In this volume, Silke Geppert explores Parmeggiani's current works from a textile history standpoint; Robert Wilson outlines the special aspect of their symbiotic collaboration; Bernd Sucher provides a recent journalistic portrait, and Elfriede Jelinek publishes a prose piece, written specifically for this book, about their mutual devotion to textile material.

Orphée et Eurydice by Christoph Willibald Gluck( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gluck's tragedy of love lost, found and lost again has always lent itself to powerful and iconoclastic interpretations. Here we can see Orphée et Eurydice in a vital new light of authenticity and innovation at the hands of the Gluck specialist John Eliot Gardiner and the acclaimed American director Robert Wilson. Working with a star cast of some of the most eloquent singer-actors of our day, with Magdalena Kozená and Madeline Bender in the title roles, Wilson makes the most of the opera's balletic possibilities to embark on mesmerising voyage into Hades, and into the very depths of the plight of the two."--Conteneur

The black rider : the casting of the 12 magic bullets( Visual )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Black Rider is Wilson's homage to German Expressionism, with the distorted perspectives of Expressionist painting and the exaggerated gestures of cabaret and silent movies. Based loosely on the German folktale underlying von Weber's opera Der Freischutz (1821), the production has many American twists, as one might safely assume with collaborators like Tom Waits and William Burroughs"--Robertwilson.com
