Robert Wilson, Lucinda Childs production of 'Patio' postponed
"I Was Sitting on My Patio This Guy Appeared I Thought I Was Hallucinating" was scheduled to begin performances on Jan. 26 as part of the Getty's Pacific Standard Time, in collaboration with LAXART. The production was intended to be a kind of re-creation of the piece's 1977 debut at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre.
Organizers said in a release sent Friday that Wilson and Childs have determined that the production "cannot be fully realized without the additional time and attention to detail this seminal performance requires."
The production had been planned to unfold for 11 performances at REDCAT, as part of the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, which is running Jan. 19-29.
