The Living Theater presents RED NOIR (Farfalla 08) Anne Waldman adapted & directed by Judith Malina


The most radical, uncompromising, and experimental group in American theatrical history." - John Tytell

Red Noir is a detective thriller in genre, based on the film noir techniques and themes. It is also to serve as an anthem for non-violent anarchy. The play’s intention is to outdate and displace violence from the theatre to serve as an example of a general need for non-violence.  

With: Judith Malina, Brad Burgess, Thomas Walker, Anthony Sisco, Eno Edet, Yasemin Ozumerzifon, Eric Olson, Maia Larraz

The Living Theatre, founded in 1947, has staged nearly a hundred productions, performed in nine languages in twenty-nine countries on five continents—a unique body of work that has influenced theater the world over. In 2007, The Living Theatre opened a new theatre at 21 Clinton Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side. The decision to return to the Lower East Side reflects the company's continuing faith in that neighborhood as a vibrant community in downtown Manhattan, without doubt a fertile landscape to cultivate new ideas in art and politics.

Upcoming: Red Noir opens in December  and will run for 6 weeks.
