Forgot to link: In this week's TONY, I review Absolute Wilson, the new documentary film about totalitarian auteur Robert Wilson. Also, a preview of the incomparable goth-punk-cabaret band the Tiger Lillies, who will be ringing in Halloween at St. Ann's Warehouse this Tuesday and Wednesday. The Wilson doc is essentially hagiographic, but there's a sly wryness about it I like very much, and Wilson is up front about being a shrewd businessman and a control freak. He's certainly not afraid to throw a diva fit in the middle of a rehearsal because a light cue isn't working properly. Sadly enough, the only critical voice is John Simon, the anti-Tynan, whose feeble pooh-poohing of Wilson's work is too vague (and too unprincipled) to take seriously. It would have given the film a vital edge to find a substantively dissenting voice. Still, there is some priceless archival footage of Wilson's early work, especially his insane site-specific, seven-day continuous performance piece KA MOUNTain and GUARDenia TERRACE, staged outdoors in Iran in 1972. Each year, or every other year, Wilson brings a new impeccable, predictable, gorgeous, boring, brilliant, redundant spectacle to BAM. I loved his production of A Dream Play, but too often these seem like heavily subsidized Eurotrash snoozefests. It's worth seeing this documentary if only to regain appreciation for this amazing artist. The doc site is here. Wilson's own site is here. As for the Tiger Lillies, if you don't know their work, enlighten (or would that be, benight?) yourself here.
