ABOUT JUDITH MALINA
Judith Malina is a German-born American theater and film actress, writer, and director. She was one of the founders, with Julian Beck, of The Living Theatre, a radical political theatre troupe that rose to prominence in New York City and Paris during the 1950s and 60s. The company was an artistic and socially-conscious alternative to commercial theater and was instrumental in establishing Off-Broadway productions. During the course of her travels with the troupe, she was arrested and imprisoned in various countries for the theatrical expression of the group’s anarchist-pacifist principles. She has received numerous awards, including a lifetime achievement Obie award, a Guggenheim award, the Brazilian President’s Medal for Outstanding Artistic Achievement, and induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame. She died in April 2015 at the age of 88.
