Summary
"This contribution to the field of theatre history is the first in-depth look at avant-garde theatre in the United States from the early 1950s to the 1990s. American Avant-Garde Theatre: A History offers definition of the avant-garde, and looks at its origins and theoretical foundations by examining: Gertrude Stein, John Cage, the Beat writers, avant-garde cinema, abstract expressionism, and minimalism." "There are discussions and illustrations of the production of the Living Theatre, the Wooster Group, Open Theatre, Ontological Hysteric Theatre and Performance Group, among many others. Aronson also examines why avant-grade theatre declined and virtually disappeared at the end of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
