Marina Abramović has reached critical mass. Once a practitioner of performance art on the fringes, she’s now a vanguard of the medium. And apparently, ripe for chronicling in operatic form. Abramovic plays herself in the U.S. debut of this layered performance. Visual art, theater, and opera combine for a multi-disciplinary, interactive stunner.
The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic is showing at the Park Avenue Armory December 12-21.
