The Road to Immortality : Part Three, Frank Dell’s The Temptation of St. Anthony

Elizabeth Le Compte

Frank Dell’s The Temptation of St. Antony is the third part of a brilliant and disconcerting trilogy.


A collage of texts from various sources, videos, highjacked perceptions. . . Appearances are all that is real, wrote Flaubert. The Wooster Group pushes theatre to the Iimit. Does not the road to immortality cross the desert of appearances? A heroic crossing, during which we are plagued by the contemporary demons of mass non-communication and glossy-paper sexuality, of decadence and uncertainty..
