Luminato Festival: Examine the Life and Death of Marina Abramovic

The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic offers a unique theatre experience at the Luminato Festival

The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic offers a unique theatre experience at the Luminato Festival

JUNE 14 TO 17  The artist becomes the art project in director Robert Wilson’s acclaimed production of The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic. As boldly innovative as the Serbian-American performance artist whose life and career it chronicles, the groundbreaking stage show is far from a typical biography. For one thing, the real-life Abramovic not only portrays herself, she also takes on the role of her mother. The ever-intriguing Willem Dafoe plays Abramovic’s male counterpart—and the story’s narrative voice. Bluma Appel Theatre, Friday, Saturday and Monday 7:30 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m., $55 to $125; call 416-368-4849 or click luminatofestival.com for further details.  —Anna Marszalek
