Been reading an edition of Libération dedicated to the dancer-director-artist Robert Wilson. If you read French, it's here. I find his work inspiring. You can watch his performance of Shakespeare's sonnets here. I love his take on language in this piece; words are transformed into dislocated, archaic sounds, like 'speaking in tongues' or Hugo Ball's Dada poetry. Bodies become stream-lined puppets, drawing shapes on the stage. This is the kind of physical avant-garde theatre that you can watch with your kids.
