Watch:


In the seminal 20th century play Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, the character Lucky enters at the end of a leash. He remains stubbornly silent, until suddenly he explodes in one of the most famous speeches in theater history. He is silent thereafter. This piece is built using the repetitive rhythmic gestures that Beckett used to build the intensely musical “Lucky’s speech”.
