Director, scenographer and actor, Robert Wilson
(Waco, Texas, 1941) is a complete range theatre master whose work, from the end of the Sixties, crossed and often drove the theatrical avant-garde.
Wilson doesn't face the contradictions of our time in a direct way, through a conventional narration.
To make them appear on the surface he split the contemporaneity up in thousand kaleidoscopic facets through a formal search that uses, for instance, the precision of the gestures of the actors and the refinement of the lights.
It results a theater that doesn't tell according to its traditional canons, but builds a structure made of visual and auditory references that act on the inner being of the spectator.
The scenographies of Wilson are often minimal, always adverse to the naturalism and finalized to the creation of a theater that doesn't aim to give answers but, rather, to set questions through the images, as Beckett did with the words.
