Robert Wilson is one of the most important theater and visual artists in the world. Appia's works have strongly influenced Wilson's staging and lighting concept. In an exceptional performance of almost three hours, he invites his astonishing aesthetic universe. Wilson, by combining hundreds of images of his creative career, creates an intimate self-portrait of his creative process. The Black Rider and his directorial work like Becketts Krapp's Last Tape, Brecht/Weilla The Threeepenny Opera, Verdis La Traviata or E.T.A. Hoffmans The Sandman.

In Waco, Texas, born in 1941, Wilson collaborated with many writers and musicians such as Heiner Müller, Tom Waits, Susan Sontag, Laurie Anderson, William Burroughs, Lou Reed and Jessye Norman. Wilson is the founder and director of The Watermill Center, a laboratory for the arts in Water Mill, New York.
