Quad 1 + 2 by Samuel Beckett( Visual )

1 edition published in 1981 and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Four players pace the sides and diagonals of a square carefully avoiding its center point and collisions with one another. In Quad I each player has a different colored robe ; in Quad II they all wear white robes. In Quad I the sound is that of continuous percussive instruments ; in Quad II only shuffling footsteps are heard. Critic Martin Esslin has described Quad as "a dynamic, witty yet terrifying attempt to compress eternity as endless recurrence into a single dramatic image, a poem without words."
