1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Based in New York City, Mabou Mines is the premier avant-garde performing ensemble in the country. In 1987, Mabou Mines set themselves a task: do Shakespeare's King Lear--the entire play--changing all references to gender and royalty. Shot with three simultaneous cameras, LEAR '87 documents the early work on the play, where these superb and radical artists tackle what is probably the most patriarchal, darkest play in the English language -- testing it to see what would happen to power relations and lines of affection when the roles were gender-reversed. The archive is an intimate portrayal of Mabou Mines at their theatrical labors, a master class in avant-garde performance work.
