    Time Zoned - Robert Wilson's First New York Premiere in 15 Years

    Ask Robert Wilson if his latest creation, THE DAYS BEFORE, Death, Destruction, & Detroit III, is postmodern, and he laughs. Then the former Texan quips in a robust twang: "I don't even know what that word means. Today, everything's 'postmodern.' " M...

    Guilty Innocents

    Pedophiles have it hard. When they're not the subjects of moral outrage or legal pursuit, they're paralyzed by morality or disappointed by rejection. From Death in Venice to Lolita, sexual relations between adults and children just don't seem to work...

    Look Back! - Choreographers Raid the Past

    L'Orfeo must have sounded like this in 1607. Brasses call from the balcony and are answered in the pit, where Ren Jacobs conducts his baroque ensemble, Concerto Vocale, in Claudio Monteverdi's opera. "I am Music," sings Graciela Oddone, praising the...

    Whine Me Dine Me

    Let's assume that fiction writers have some say about what traits to bestow upon their protagonists, that the muse doesn't just arrive unbidden and deliver a character whole. And let's suppose that three seemingly bright women, two of them well into ...

    Rebirth in Venice

    There's hardly anything wrong with the 48th Venice Biennale. No obtuse curatorial statements. No social-issue faux pas. It's smooth, generous, professional, and filled with grandly realized works in fabulously decrepit spaces. Even the catalogue, org...

    Art of Darkness

    A cornered man plots his own demise. Lowlifes circle with sharpened knives. Pasts are murky, names false. Murderers, thieves, and seducers trade lies. And all slink about in a postcivilization darkness. These are the elements of Shem Bitterman's The ...

    Love's Labour's Loud
