In Memoriam: Judith Malina

April 22, 2015

By Melissa Barton

The Yale Collection of American Literature remembers and honors dramatist and political performance artist Judith Malina, co-founder of the Living Theatre, 1926-2015. Describing Malina in 2012, theater scholar Richard Schechner wrote:

The thing about Judith Malina is that she is indefatigable, unstoppable, erupting with ideas. Malina is long-living, long-working, optimistic, and by the second decade of the 21st century girlish and old womanish at the same time. She survives and she bubbles, both.

From The New York Times: Judith Malina, Founder of the Living Theater, Dies at 88.
