The Living Theatre is honoring the spirit of the Egyptian Revolution by live-streaming their final performances of KORACH – a play about “the first recorded anarchist in history.” The piece was written and directed by living legend Judith Malina, a pioneer in experimental and political theater
KORACH follows the history of anarchists who have been wiped out because they frightened the government. Inspired by the Books of Moses, the Jewish Mishnas, and also the Psalms, KORACH begins with the Israelites’ trek through the desert and eventual uprising against Moses, lead by Korach and his tribe.
Living Legend Judith Malina has been hard at work on a new show with her vigorous ensemble of players at The Living Theatre. Now in their 63rd season, (you read that correctly) Malina has begun previews for her latest experimental production, KORACH. They note that the piece is “a new play based on the Biblical account of Korach, ‘the first recorded anarchist in history,’ who challenged the authority of Moses over the Israelites; a pivotal point in their 40-year trek through the desert after their liberation from Egyptian slavery.” For more about the show and the historic Living Theatre, visit (Off)broadwayworld here. The show will officially open on December 16. $20 (Wed. pay-what-you-can) // Wed.-Sat. // 8pm // 21 Clinton Street.
