William Kentridge Teatro Constanzi
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. Please follow ArtNews for updates.
Kentridge has created Waiting for the Sybil for the Teatro Constanzi in Rome, Italy, half a century after, and in response to, Alexander Calder’s Work in Progress. Having both been made for the same stage (where Kentridge also presented Alban Berg’s Lulu in 2017), these two theatrical commissions will be performed after one another each night. Kentridge premised his “dialogue with Calder” on fragmented, floating pages and the Cumaean Sibyl, and collaborated on this new work with the musician/singer/dance company director Nhlanhla Mahlangu and the composer Kyle Shepherd.
