Robert Wilson,
Founder and Artistic Director, The Watermill Center

Robert Wilson was born in Waco, Texas and has been described by The New York Times as "[America]'s – or even the world's – foremost vanguard 'theater artist.'" He has also worked as a choreographer, performer, painter, sculptor, video artist, and sound and lighting designer. Wilson is best known for his collaboration with Philip Glass and Lucinda Childs on Einstein on the Beach, and his frequent collaborations with Tom Waits. In 1991, Wilson established The Watermill Center, "a laboratory for performance" on the East End of Long Island, New York, regularly working with opera and theater companies, as well as cultural festivals and artists from around the globe. Wilson is considered 'the maestro of the avant-garde' specifically in Europe in its most significant cultural centers, galleries, museums, opera houses, theaters, and festivals. His work has been presented in most major European, South American, and Japanese opera houses. His work is frequently presented in the United States at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, and the Houston Grand Opera.
