Philip Dodd talks to nonagenarian artist Louise Bourgeois about her new exhibition, Sublimation.
When Anton Chekhov met the actress Olga Knipper he was thirty eight years old and she was twenty nine. They were married for just three years before he died, and although Olga lived until she was ninety one she never re-married. Their love affair - much of it conducted by letter, as Chekhov's poor health kept him from visiting Olga in Moscow - is the subject of a new play directed by Peter Brook. In Night Waves Philip Dodd talks to the great director about this new production and its place within the body of work which has made him famous.
