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.'
