About This Event

Julian Beck’s “The Life of the Theatre”, first published in 1972, is one of the classic collections of political, activist theatre literature. And yet, the miniatures, letters and poems in which the painter, poet and anarchist gives an insight into his notion of the theatre, expresses his criticism of society and shares his philosophical and spiritual thoughts, had never been published in German until now. From 16 May 2021, Julian Beck’s “Das Theater leben” will be available from Theater der Zeit, translated by Beate Hein Bennett and Anna Opel. It was produced in cooperation with Berliner Festspiele and edited by Thomas Oberender. In a short reading, Jana Auburger and Hannah Heinzelmann will present selected parts of the book.
