To mark his return to Luxembourg and to complement the world premiere of his new piece Oh les beaux jours, the Grand Théâtre presents Robert Wilson in an exclusive one-off event. It is a unique opportunity to see the American director and true pioneer of the arts take on one of Beckett's most autobiographical works, the legendary monologue Krapp's Last Tape.

Krapp's Last Tape is considered to be Beckett at his most autobiographical. Beckett takes elements from his own life, his failed love life, his drinking, his - at the time - literary failures and looks where things might have gone and it does draw heavily on biographical detail.

» [...] a towering figure in the world of experimental theatre and an explorer in the uses of time and space on stage. Transcending theatrical convention, he draws in other performance and graphic arts, which coalesce into an integrated tapestry of images and sounds. The New York Times on Robert Wilson

» [...] it has the signature of a major artistic creation. I can't think of any body of work as large or as influential. Susan Sontag on Robert Wilson's artistic career
