Robert Wilson's theatre is the stuff of legend. He has taught theatre-goers to see the world with different eyes.
Stefan Brecht's book provides detailed documentation and analysis of a number of Wilson's earliest groundbreaking works including The Life of Sigmund Freud, Deafman Glance and Einstein on the Beach. "Never since I was born have I seen anything more beautiful on this earth, never ever has there been another performance to equal this one, because it is simultaneously life at its most vivid and life with its eyes closed, reality mixed with dreaming, the inexplicability of everything in a deaf man's glance." (Louis Aragon Open Letter to Andre Breton)"His theatre is a world of its own" (Heiner Muller)
