Julian Beck

1925 (New York) – 1985 (New York)

Malina was Beck’s marriage partner, and co-founder of the influential Living Theater. Agee, Cage and Cunningham helped them set up the company, Cage and Cunningham helping them find premises. Ginsberg, friend and soul-mate, gave Beck a manuscript to sell to fund one of his court battles. Virilio joined him in taking over Barrault’s Odéon theatre during the 1968 Paris événements (leading to Barrault himself being sacked for taking the students’ side).
