Don't miss The Living Theatre's, RED NOIR, running now through Jan. 30th. Co-founder and living legend Judith Malina directs her company (the oldest experimental theater group still producing in the United States) in a collaboration with beat
poet and experimental author Anne Waldman.
Waldman's words have been adapted by Malina to reflect our current political times, and life on the Lower East Side. The audience is surrounded by powerful images from the war in Afghanistan and live video of the ensemble cast and chorus. All the while- Malina builds on the themes of non-violent protest and anarchy- hallmarks of the Living Theater since its inception.
Malina, a true pioneer in experimental and political theater, is now in her 80's and it's a thrill to see her going strong on Clinton Street. As Heather Violanti aptly describes it in her review for nytheatre.com, "Watching Red Noir, you don't get the feeling of an avant-garde
tradition re-inventing itself. Rather, you sense a tradition being
carried forward with vigor and without ossification. Red Noir is not ahead of the curve; it is the curve."
