About This Production

Julian Beck’s collected writings on various aspects of his theoretical and practical theatre work in connection with the Living Theatre are radical and visionary – and not always easy to understand today. How deeply are they rooted in the context of the times of their writing? Where can we look for connections and find inspiration? What do they have to tell us today? In an open discussion, institutional challenges, performative self-contradictions and impossible dialogues will be explored.
