From Booklist:

Avant-garde director Robert Wilson is best known for long, graceful, slowly performed theater pieces and the simple, visually stunning effects he creates for them--the beautiful wood puppet held aloft in The Knee Plays, for instance, or the three performers moving mechanically in front of a steam engine in Einstein on the Beach. Many of his concepts have become emblems, if not cliches, of 1970s and 1980s minimalist performance. This beautifully designed coffee-table book collects eye-popping black-and-white and color photographs of 24 of Wilson's presentations, from Deafman Glance (1970) to Bluebeard's Castle/Erwartung (1995), and lists performance times, casts, and the literary and musical sources of each piece. Four jargon-filled academic essays discuss Wilson's life, work, and place in art history; happily, they, too, are lavishly illustrated, with Wilson's sketches and photographs of the striking set pieces and witty installations he creates while building up steam for his next epic. Jack Helbig
