THE LIFE AND DEATH OF MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ
December 12 - 21, 2013
As the grand dame of performance art, Marina Abramović has earned international acclaim for her boldness and startling originality, often blurring the boundaries between her work and her life. But when bringing this confluence to the theatrical stage, she handed the reins to another avant-garde genius, director and visual artist Robert Wilson. The result—The Life and Death of Marina Abramović—is a once-in-a-generation cultural event at the intersection of theater, opera, and visual art.
Beginning with her difficult childhood in the former Yugoslavia, Abramović chronicles her ascension to art icon status with world-renowned actor Willem Dafoe and original music written and performed by Antony of Antony and the Johnsons. Having played to sold-out audiences and rave reviews throughout Europe, this groundbreaking achievement makes its highly-anticipated U.S. premiere in the Armory’s vast Wade Thompson Drill Hall.
