Robert Wilson is internationally regarded as one of the most significant and innovative theater artists of the second half of the 20th Century. Acclaimed as the “high priest” of postmodernism, Wilson is especially noted for such productions as “THE civil warS: a tree is best measured when its down,” “Einstein on the Beach,” and “When We Dead Awaken.” This behind-the-scenes documentary offers a fascinating view of how Wilson created his unique one-man performance of “Hamlet.” Focusing on the “Monologue’s” world premiere at the Alley Theater, and drawing on rehearsal and performance footage, the video captures the rich texture of Wilson’s multi-dimensional mode of working in the theater. Interviews with Wilson as well as his principal artistic collaborators reveal how this “Hamlet” both builds on, and diverges from, his previous productions, offering a fresh new interpretation of the classic Shakespeare text while exploring new means of theatrical expression.
