Written mainly in the ten years up to 1985, the year of Julian Beck's death, Theandric is very much about fighting death. It is a kind of testament, an ultimate statement on "the philosophy and metaphysics of the theatre", a sub-title he frequently used for Theandric, in which his life-long concerns, such as the structure of the relationship between audience and theatre workers and the relationship of the artist to the political time in which he lives, are crystallized. He discovered that the existing word "theandric" expressed the presence of the divine in the actor.
The aim of The Living Theatre Archive is to present material, largely unpublished, which will give an insight into the history, inner workings and methods of the Living Theatre, and the thinking of Julian Beck and Judith Malina. It will concentrate on the period from 1947 to 1985, the year that Julian Beck died. Scripts, production notes, diary pages, workbooks/directing books, sketches, photographs, article

Review:

The whole theatrical act, Beck writes, is a ritual designed to renew our vitality, to deliver us from death, and this is accomplished by taking a breath...The object of the art is to make the audience gasp.
–Michel Pearce and Anton Piatigorsky of American Theatre, September 1992
