Leave a note for the Living Theatre Workshops
[ New entry ]
Lois and Jerry, longtime members of The Living Theatre, presented an intensive 3 hour workshop on Antonin Artaud, the French playwright and director and a great influence on The Living Theatre. The scope of their
knowledge on Artaud is impressive and inspiring. The workshop at Vassar was interactive, rigorous and intellectually stimulating. It certainly got the students thinking and jump started the semester's Artaud seminar. Wonderful work, Thank you!
The Living Theatre visited University of Nevada, Reno to devise "Day in the Life of Reno" with our students. I observed students take risks and evolve in their presence, commitment and willingness to work. Lois and Jerry embody a unique and relevant approach to training young performers. It was wonderful to experience the performance of truths. I appreciate their contribution to the craft and their discussion of the work. Thank you Jerry and Lois!
I wholeheartedly support the life-affirming work of Living Theatre Workshops.
When I first heard, "Mysteries and Smaller Pieces" I had no idea what to expect. I remember thinking, "Okay it's living theatre so it has to be crazy and weird right?". I couldn't have been more wrong. Thanks to Jerry and Lois my original opinion ( which was i admit extremely uninformed) was thrown out the window. They were able to show me that the living theatre is an organization that exposes issues to the public and goes about finding a solution or making the audience think about solutions to these issues. I love this about the Living Theatre, I was never much of an activist but now I believe I am going to have a great voice and a say on issues in our country and throughout the world. So first Thank you living theatre company for just doing what you do.
My opinion of a theatre company was changed through out this three week process of putting on Mysteries and Smaller Pieces, but that's not the only thing that changed about me. One main thing that has changed is well... myself as an actor. Through this play I have come in touch with the true actor that has been wanting to come out for so long. When performing Mysteries its all about full commitment to what you are doing and that full commitment, that focus, that drive is what has made me a better actor.
Jerry and Lois, I would just like to say thank you so much for coming to help us with this production. Also, thank you for helping me find myself as an actor, and bring me at peace with the person who I really am. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you both in the future.
Having Jerry and Lois come to help our class with Mysteries...and Smaller Pieces is probably something I will never forget. I've never felt so in tune with my physicality, my emotions, and with an ensemble of people. I'm so glad they came, because I learned so much that will carry into future acting and my life in general. Jerry and Lois are genuinely goodhearted and talented people that really helped to shape our play into what it will be for our run. Thank you so much!
