Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui


The American avant-garde company Mabou Mines has been praised for its work with Samuel Beckett's early plays. While David Warrilow and Fred Neumann's presentations of Beckett's prose for the stage are better known, founding co-artistic director Ruth Maleczech sought and received permission from Beckett to stage his prose fiction Imagination Dead Imagine in 1984. Maleczech's production provided Mabou Mines with a new take on staging Beckett by combining the company's tradition of working with the playwright's text with their innovative use of technology and transforming the relationship between actor, audience, and performance.
