The Life and Death of Marina Abramović

The Life and Death of Marina Abramović Robert Wilson, Marina Abramović, Antony, Willem Dafoe

Following it's premiere at MIF13, Manchester International Festival took The Life and Death of Marina Abramović to tour the world.

Visually stunning, musically captivating and surprisingly warm, witty and human, this three-hour epic saw Marina Abramović hand her life, work and legacy over to legendary director Robert Wilson for him to remake entirely.

Drawing audiences from all over the world to witness what was neither theatre, opera nor art, but a thrilling crossbreed of all three, Life and Death featured spell-binding performances from all involved, including Abramović herself, plus Hollywood mainstay Willem Dafoe and musician Antony. This was a life-changing experience for audiences and participants alike.

'...what unfolded was a series of masterly scenes. Stunningly lit with a coruscating soundtrack and a sublimely tender score...the tragic-comic vignettes flow gorgeously past your eyes and ears. By the end, the audience are on their feet. Many have come here already aware they were entering the presence of genius. For those of us who discovered it for the first time, the night was even more special.'
