Summary/Abstract: As a teenager, Robert Wilson suffered from a speech disorder. When a traditional therapy did not work, dance and working with the body turned out to be effective. Inspired by the experience, Wilson invented a system based on dance and physical activities which allowed him to work with disabled children as well as those who, for whatever reason, were excluded socially. He deviced individual movements for every actor and the whole system’s aim was psychologically-therapeutic. Wilson was inspired by the body moving in slow motion which created an oeniric effect. Wilson’s experience with the body is clearly visible in his shows created in institutional theatres. Actors with heavy make-up move according to a particular sequence inside a closed aesthetic form. The author looks at Wilson’s Berlin piece „Peter Pan” to analyse the way the performer’s body and voice work in his theatre.
