Texts by Judith Malina, Mikhail Bakunin, Kenneth Patchen, Eric Gutkind, Eldridge Cleaver, Enrico Malatesta, Piotr Kropotkin and The Living Theatre Collective.
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. 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.
“The most prominent and persistent advocate for a ‘new theater’, one that sought to dissolve the accepted artifice of stage presentations, to conjoin art and political protest, and to shrink, if not eliminate, the divide between performers and the audience.”
–The New York Times
