The Living book of the Living Theatre ( Book )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
Founded in 1947, the Living Theatre is the oldest experimental theatre group still existing in the U.S. This book represents itself as a presentation of the group as much as a presentation of theatrical spectacle, noting that it is the essential philosophy of a group which overturned classic and experimental dramatic forms to replace them with political protest and moral anarchy. Within the book, the Living Theatre's point-of-view is expressed in words and photographs which alternate between daily life and the stage. Poetic and political statements alternate with the bulk of the book consisting of black and white images, varied in content but universal in their denunciation of the alienating structure of capitalist society

This videotape was shot during the last presentations of Paradise Now in Brussels and before 7,000 spectators in the Berlin Sportspalast. Expressionistic coloring has been injected by electronic means. During the four hours of performance, a baccanal of forms and confrontations goes on in every part of the theater. Paradise Now is mind blowing and innovative blurring of the line between political action, psychotherapy, tribal ritual and experimental theatre

Mekas filmed this play about a Marine Corps prison on the stage of the Living Theatre after it had been closed down by the police for tax evasion.

The furious rhythms of the play convey the inhumanity of military discipline with the raw force of a battle document

"In 1968 the Living Theatre returned to America with a repertory of four new productions developed during their years of self-imposed exile in Europe. Their triumphant tour was in tune with the revolutionary aspirations of the late sixties, documented in this extraordinary film.
