Title: Signals Through The Flames
Source: Mystic Fire Video
Picture Quality Poor
I made this transcription from a capture board using a VHS tape.
Signals Through The Flames documents the Living Theater of Julian Beck and Judith Melina.
It is the story of political action expressed through experimental theater and is for
those archival purposes of theater history and lessons from the movement.
The original VHS is out of print. Mystic Fire has not duplicated the film to dvd. Please contact them if you think this work is worth preserving for a new generation
of theater experimenters. A few copies of the VHS exist but they are difficult to find.
As said in the description the quality of the job content is poor due to lack
of experience with video capture and editing.
Julian Beck died in 1985 of stomach cancer. Judith Melina continues to work
as an actress.
The Living Theater maintains a website and is actively producing new works:
As with my other torrents which include La Commune, these works are given to show how theater can be a vehicle for change.
