The distinctive performance artist Marina Abramović is telling her life story — and attending her own funeral — at the Park Avenue Armory. Be assured, Abramović is very much alive, but she, with the help of the singular director Robert Wilson, is looking backward from the future in The Life and Death of Marina Abramović, a theatrical event made distinct by the sensibilities of these two artists.

Theater, opera and visual art intersect in a striking presentation with a cast that includes Abramović, the pop singer Antony, and actor Willem Dafoe. New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood orients us to the world of this unusual 3-D biography.
