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.
