This chapter begins with a production with Robert Wilson visual book and starts staging it with light. Movement is the dynamic of his work. Watermill workshops, which are workshops in the loosest sense of the term, involve people coming from very different horizons at varying points in their development. All, as they mix and mingle their perspectives, provide the resources for the intergeneric exploration – Wilson calls it ‘interdisciplinary research’ – that he had envisaged for his centre from its very inception. Others may wish to pursue Wilson’s ‘magic’ tricks with objects, invisible strings and all. Students move with their body; movement is in their body and their body is their instrument, with they all the time. It is most convenient for students to work with what they always have at their disposal.
