To call into question
who we are to each other
in the social environment of the theater,

to undo the knots that lead to misery,

to spread ourselves across the public's table
like platters at a banquet ...

The Living Theatre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  (Redirected from Living Theatre)

The Living Theatre is an American theatre company founded in 1947 and based in New York City.

It is the oldest experimental theatre group still existing in the U.S. For most of its history it was led

by its founders, actor Judith Malina and painter/poet Julian Beck; after Beck's death in 1985,

company member Hanon Reznikov became co-director with Malina.

In the 1950s, the group was among the first in the U.S. to produce the work of influential European

playwrights such as Bertolt Brecht (In The Jungle of Cities in New York, 1960) and Jean Cocteau,

as well as modernist poets such as T. S. Eliot and Gertrude Stein. Based in a variety of small New

York locations which were frequently closed due to financial problems or conflicts with city

authorities, they helped to originate Off-Broadway as a significant force in U.S. theatre. Their

work during this period shared some aspects of style and content with Beat generation writers.

Also during the 1950s, the American composer Alan Hovhaness worked closely with

the Living Theatre, composing music for its productions. In 1959, their play The Connection

attracted national attention for its harsh portrayal of drug addiction and its equally harsh language.

The Brig (1963), an anti-authoritarian look at conditions in a Marine prison, was their last major

production in New York before a disagreement with the IRS led to the closure of the theatre space

and the brief imprisonment of Beck and Malina. For the rest of the 1960s the group toured chiefly

in Europe, and turned to even more politically and formally radical work carrying an anarchist and

pacifist message, with the company members creating plays collectively and often living together.

Major works from this period included the adaptations Antigone and Frankenstein, and Paradise

Now, which became their best-known play. Paradise Now, a semi-improvisational piece involving

audience participation, was notorious for a scene in which actors recited a list of social taboos

that included nudity, while themselves disrobing; this led to multiple arrests for indecent exposure.

Having returned to the U.S. in 1968 to tour Paradise Now, the group broke apart the next year.

Malina and Beck toured with the remaining members in Brazil, where they were imprisoned in

1971, then returned to New York to form a new version of the group. Former member Joseph Chaikin

left to form The Open Theater.

The Living Theatre has toured extensively throughout the world, often in non-traditional venues

such as streets and prisons. It has greatly influenced other American experimental theatre companies,

notably The Open Theater (founded by Living Theatre member Joseph Chaikin) and Bread and

Puppet Theater. Its productions have won four Obie Awards: The Connection (1959),

The Brig (1963 and 2007), and Frankenstein (1968). Though its prominence and resources have

diminished considerably in recent decades, The Living Theatre continues to produce new plays in

New York City, many with anti-war themes.

In 2006, The Living Theatre signed a 10-year lease on the 3500 square foot basement of a new

residential building under construction at 21 Clinton Street, between Houston and Stanton Streets

on Manhattan's Lower East Side. The Clinton Street theater is the company's first permanent home

since the closing of The Living Theatre on Third Street at Avenue C in 1993. The company moved

into the completed space in early 2007 and opened in April 2007 with a production of The Brig by

Kenneth H. Brown, first presented at The Living Theatre at 14th Street and Sixth Avenue in 1963.

The re-staging, directed by Judith Malina won Obie Awards for Direction and Ensemble

Performance.

In October 2006, the company opened a revival of "Mysteries and Smaller Pieces" the 1964

collective creation that defined the interactive and Artaudian style that the company became

famous for.

Company founder Judith Malina is currently performing in "Maudie and Jane" a stage adaptation

of the Doris Lessing novel, "The Diary of Jane Somers."
