Summary

The Piscator Notebookis a political and professional autobiography which bridges the work of two iconic figures: Erwin Piscator, who pioneered 'epic theatre' with Brecht; and Judith Malina, co-founder of the extraordinarily influential Living Theatre. This is Malina's account, and analysis, of her time as Piscator's student. It is a compelling record of the genealogy of political theatre from Europe to the US and back again.
