Video 50 and Deafman Glance









































Robert Wilson screened two short films, Video 50 and Deafman Glance at The Kitchen’s Video Viewing Room in December 1982. Video 50, created for broadcast television, is a compilation of 100, 30-second video clips and although the content of each clip seems unrelated to one another, the video as a whole creates a surreal and compelling narrative that effectively uses humor and visual drama. Deafman Glance, excerpted and adapted for television, consists of excerpts from Wilson’s silent five-hour opera that tells the somber story of a murder with a chilling performance by Sheryl Sutton, . Both works include music by Alan Lloyd.
