Malina Returns to Yale

Forty-one years after The Living Theatre's now legendary performance of Paradise Now at Yale Repertory Theatre in September 1968, which ended in the arrest of 10performers and audience members for public indecency, co-founder and Artistic Director Judith Malina returns to New Haven for a two-day residency at Yale School of Drama, Sept. 14-15.

Malina will be joined by Living Theatre General Manager and Archivist Thomas S. Walker and Administrative Director Brad Burgess for a series of classes and workshops with Yale School of Drama students.

In addition, free public screenings of "Signals Through the Flames and Resist!" documentaries about the work of The Living Theatre, will be held at Yale Repertory Theatre (1120 Chapel St., at York Street) on Sept. 14 and 15 respectively at 7:30 pm. The screenings will be followed by discussions and book signings with Malina, Walker and Burgess.

Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library has acquired the archives of The Living Theatre. This collection documents the administration of the theatre, its stage productions, and its relationship to other avant-garde and radical cultural and political movements in the United States and Europe from the 1960s to the present. Also included are extensive diaries and journals of Malina and the late Julian Beck, as well as their personal papers and writings.
