Description: Judith Malina’s revolutionary career with The Living Theatre has spanned six decades, traversed the globe and inspired generations of political theater artists. Members of the ensemble—aged 7 to 70—host an evening of performances and stories from Malina’s history. SEVEN MEDITATIONS ON POLITICAL SADO-MASOCHISM March 9th – 10th: Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30pm March 15th – 30th: Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:30pm
A visceral examination of the social contract between the governed and the government, Seven Meditations was written after Malina and members of the company were imprisoned–and some tortured–by the Médici dictatorship in Brazil in 1973, and hasn’t been performed since its debut. Considered one of the company’s most significant pieces, the play explores Sacher-Masoch’s Six Houses of Bondage: Love, Money, Property, State, War and Death, with a seventh meditation on Revolutionary Change.
