On the Beach

Apr 5 - 7, 2012 | Howard Gilman Performance Space
Inspired by the opera Einstein on the Beach, originally created in 1976 by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass, Mr. Wilson has selected five teams of artists to re-interpret sections of the seminal work.

The artists, all of whom have been in residence at Wilson’s Watermill Center performance laboratory, are from around the world, work in a variety of disciplines, and some have not collaborated previously. They are Jonah Bokaer (choreographer, dancer, NYC) and Davide Balliano (visual and performance artist, Italy); Degenerate Art Ensemble (performance company, Seattle); Manuela Infante (theater director, Chile) and Santiago Taccetti (visual artist, Argentina); Steven Reker & People Get Ready (choreographer, dancer, and musician, NYC); Egil Saebjornsson (visual artist, Iceland) and Marcia Moraes (theater director, choreographer, and performer, Brazil).

Four scenes and the Knee Plays (short pieces presented between and connecting the four acts of Einstein on the Beach) are the sources of inspiration for these new works. On The Beach celebrates a new generation of artists and their reactions to an opera that is widely recognized as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century.
