Welcoming Robert Wilson
Welcoming our inaugural
Honorary Board Member
All the excitement and joy of BAM will not wear off anytime soon, but as always, we are moving into fall, nourishing our programs, and embracing the constant transformations within our environment. New faces are joining us, others are leaving but staying close.
Among the new persons entering our universe, we are pleased to announce that Mr. Robert Wilson will become the inaugural member of our honorary board. It goes without saying that we are incredibly honored and happy to have Mr. Wilson join. He has been instrumental in our growth as artists and persons, starting with LEIMAY's time spent at Mr. Wilson's Watermill Center in 2007. Over the years, we have continued to work with him in various projects, including performances at the Watermill Center and overseas in Berlin and Weimar, Germany.
Robert Wilson is a towering figure in contemporary and experimental theater, starting with the renowned Downtown NYC theater scene and advancing to international acclaim for his visionary uses of light, staging, and design in contemporary performance. Einstein on the Beach, his non-linear, transcendent opera with Philip Glass composing and Lucinda Childs choreographing changed the potential of contemporary opera. Wilson continues to collaborate with emerging artists through the Watermill Center and to present his work around the world.
Please check below some of the upcoming projects of Mr. Wilson. One in LA (Einstein on the Beach) and the other in Paris (Living Rooms at the Louvre).
