Conversation between legendary American director Robert Wilson and world-class French actor Isabelle Huppert on their collaboration on French theatre and their 1994 collaboration, Orlando. Moderator (to be confirmed): James Lipton, host, writer and executive producer of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”



Isabelle Huppert is one of the most versatile, enduring, and respected actresses in French cinema. She won Best Actress at Cannes for Violette Noziére (Claude Chabrol, 1978), the British Academy Award for Best Newcomer for The Lacemaker (Claude Goretta, 1978), Best Actress César for The Ceremony (Claude Chabrol, 1995), and was named Best Actress at Cannes in The Piano Teacher (2001). Huppert has had an equally distinguished career onstage, most recently in the title role of Hedda Gabler at the Paris Odéon, and in Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychose, directed by Claude Régy. She collaborated on Medea with director Jacques Lassalle (Avignon, 2001). She was Schiller’s Mary Stuart for Howard David at the Royal National Theater in London (1996) and Virginia Woolf’s Orlando for Robert Wilson at Theatre de Vidy-Lausanne and the Paris Odéon in 1993–94.

The New York Times described Robert Wilson as “a towering figure in the world of experimental theater and an explorer in the uses of time and space onstage. Transcending theatrical convention, he draws in other performance and graphic arts, which coalesce into an integrated tapestry of images and sounds.” He has produced groundbreaking work such as Deafman Glance, The Life and Times of Joseph Stalin, Einstein on the Beach, the CIVIL warS, Hamletmachine, Woyzeck, When We Dead Awaken, Salomé, Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights, and The Black Rider. Wilson is the founder of The Watermill Center, which is aninternational facility for new work in the arts, conceived to foster communication and innovation.
