The obsession started after watching the film Absolute Wilson last spring, which I recently re-watched. I soon discovered that they were doing a revival of Einstein on the Beach which includes choreography by Lucinda Childs and music by Philip Glass. I also discovered that a friend of mine was in it! I HAD to go! So this Thursday is the big night! You can shake that gift all you want but you won't know what's inside until you open it, and experience it first hand. If you don't know who Robert Wilson is, you should definitely look him up. Whether you agree, disagree, like or dislike his work, he is an incredibly interesting person who has had a huge impact on art and people. You can find the film Absolute Wilson on Netflix. Below are some articles about the upcoming run of Einstein on the Beach! I can't wait to experience this new world!
