“Strikingly composed . . . a technically assured performance by Will Bond. A portrait of one ‘genius’ taking on another. . . Bond has balletic precision.” – The New York Times
Returning for its third New York City Season, SITI Company is proud to begin its presenting partnership with the newly formed New York Live Arts with its Obie Award-winning Bob. Bob is a solo show that revolves around the life and times of an internationally known avant-garde theater director. Acclaimed as a genius, he rides the fast track of the ever-shrinking global art scene. He uses his own history and everyone around him as fodder for his grandiose staged spectacles. Through Bob, you’ll experience a creative crisis in the making and see where American pop culture and high culture collide. Bob is not meant to be a realistic portrait of Robert Wilson the man, rather a dip into an engaging perspective about family, art, and American Culture.
Bob was commissioned by the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University. Bob was developed in association with Theatre Archa, Prague, Czech Republic.
