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.

(Please Note: There is nudity and simulated violence in the show. Not appropriate for children.)

“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

“The greatest theater that I experienced in my life was The Living Theatre.”

–Al Pacino

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
