Krapp's Last Tape


22-23 Feb 2014

By Samuel Beckett
Designed, Directed and Performed by Robert Wilson

Australian Exclusive/Premiere
Robert Wilson is a towering figure in the world of experimental theatre. THE NEW YORK TIMES

The master of theatre himself, Robert Wilson, takes to the stage with one of Samuel Beckett’s rarely performed works.

The curtain rises on ‘a late evening in the future.’ An old man sitting alone in his den on his 69th birthday prepares a recording about the past year of his life, as he has done on every birthday since he was a young man. His desk is lit by a single white light, a thundering storm cracks through a constant, chilling silence … 

Wilson’s desire to challenge the conventions of the stage has attracted high profile collaborators including Philip Glass, Tom Waits and most recently the Berliner Ensemble, whose The Threepenny Opera opened the Festival last year.

In Krapp’s Last Tape, Wilson steps out of the shadows to take centre stage in this rare and unmissable theatrical event.
