>Build The Living Theatre
>Judith Malina and her ensemble have opened a new
>facility in lower Manhattan, USA. This is a
>beautiful, ideal performance space – and expensive to maintain.
>Earlier this year the company was struck by the
>untimely death of its co–director and Judith's
>husband, Hanon Resnikov. Judith has courageously
>chosen to move earth and heaven to keep our Living Theatre alive.
>Please, for the love of theater, the Living
>Theatre especially, join us now in building an
>ongoing process that can keep Judith's living
>dream thriving. Be a part of this new work.
>us in pledging a small or large monthly
>contribution. In doing this, you will become a
>Builder, one of those special people keeping the
>Living alive. And that's a very good thing to do.
>View our Past
>Under the direction of its founders Julian Beck
>and Judith Malina, the company performed on four
>continents in 44 countries and two dozen languages.
>Continuing this tradition Judith and her
>co-director Hanon Resnikov led the company for
>the past two and a half decades since Julian's death.
>View our Present
>First by opening a tiny storefront theater on
>East Third Street. Then by continuing to tour
>the world giving experimental theatre a voice
>and a stage in such places as Eastern Europe, Ecuador, Brazil, and Lebanon.
> From a temporary base in the mountains of
> Northern Italy they meandered their way back to
> New York, opening a beautiful new space on Clinton Street.
>View our Future
>This facility – Judith and Hanon designed the
>space! – is expensive to maintain along with
>staff and production budgets and all the fees
>and costs to run a theater in New York.
>Judith and the Living Theatre company need your
>help – just a little help – right now to begin a
>Builder's Fund to run this theater into the
>future, to bring change to another decade.
>can make this happen - just click yes!
>Over six decades the Living Theatre has changed the course of world theater.
