Abramović and Dafoe ("The English Patient," "Platoon," The Idiot Savant), along with an international cast of actors and performance artists, will appear in the piece that will feature songs written and performed by Antony. Costumes are by Jacques Reynaud.
The Life and Death of Marina Abramović, according to the Luminato Festival, "brings together the worlds of theatre, art and music to thrilling effect and features scenes from Abramović's life and career, from her Serbian childhood to her work as an internationally-acclaimed performance artist. Starting with Marina's biography, Wilson shows us the struggles of an artist to detach herself from her past and home to find her own voice, and the subsequent struggle once successful to combine her existence as an artist with a sense of love and feeling of home."
The Life and Death of Marina Abramović premiered at the Manchester International Festival and has been presented at the Teatro Real in Madrid, the Holland Festival, Theater Basel and Art Basel in Switzerland and de Singel in Antwerp.
