Robert Wilson demonstrates his ideas for how actors should move on the stage. Originally a section of Visionary of Theater (1993-7) by Paul Kaiser.

Technical constraints of the time limited both file size and bandwidth -- but here to surprising advantage, for the near-thumbnail size of Wilson's body makes you read it as a whole rather than simply reading the facial expressions, with the result that the body seems to inscribe its motion like calligraphy.

Cinematography by Babette Mangolte; video compositing by Nam Szeto.
