The legendary double solo of Robert Wilson and Lucinda Childs now passed on to two outstanding performers.

A complete change. I Was Sitting on my Patio… was directed by Robert Wilson in 1977, barely a year after the dynamic force of Einstein on the Beach. A monologue without drama has a stream of consciousness pouring forth, set in the simplicity of a black and white stage and driven by movements initially angular then feverish. A frenzy of words, uttered first by Robert Wilson himself, then repeated by Lucinda Childs marking them with the expressiveness of inner collapse. Clinical minimalism, formal austerity perceived through contradictions: nothing materializes, not even this guy in the title and the first words of the text. Nothing happens and everything happens; everything happens and happens again in individual difference, and will come back again and again, going round and round like a roundabout.
