The Living Theater and the New American Cinema: NEWSREEL: JONAS IN THE BRIG,THE BRIG, STREET SONGS
HOWL ! ARTS PROJECT 2009: FILM SERIES presents



The Living Theater and the New American Cinema


NEWSREEL:  JONAS IN THE BRIG, 1964, directed by Storm de Hirsch.  With Jonas Mekas and members of the Living Theatre.  B/W, silent, 5 min.  16m print courtesy of the New York Film-Makers Cooperative.

A newsreel of Jonas Mekas shooting his filmed version of The Brig on the set of the Living Theatre production.  (Storm de Hirsch)


THE BRIG, 1963, directed by Jonas Mekas.  With members of the Living Theatre.  B/W, sound, 68 min.  16mm print courtesy of the New York Film-Makers Cooperative.

Part drama, part polemic, with shock-wave sound and a nightmare air that  suggests Kafka with a Kodak, the movie does exactly what it sets out to do  seizes the audience by the shirtfront and slams it around from wall to wall for one grueling day in a Marine Corps lockup.  (Time Magazine)


STREET SONGS, 1983, directed by Jonas Mekas.  With Julian Beck and members of the Living Theatre.   B/W, sound, 10 min.   16mm print courtesy of The New York Film-Makers Cooperative.

Made in 1966/1983 STREET SONGS is a 1966 performance, in France, of a section of the Living Theaters Mysteries and Smaller Pieces.  Based on a chance-determined scenario written by Jackson Maclow in 1961, STREET SONGS weaves militant political chants into a mandala of mantras.  Julian Beck sits cross legged on an empty stage; the slogan he repeats  Free All Men! Ban the Bomb! Stop the War! Free the Blacks! Change the World!  are both meditation and calls to action, as a crowd of voices answers each slogan and actors join him on stage to pace in a circle, clasp one anothers shoulders and collectively breathe Ohmm (the Village Voice)
