Joe Chaikin and American Experimental TheaterStreaming Video - 2006
The story of Joe Chaikin's professional life is also the story of experimental theater in America. In this intimate program, footage of Chaikin in action as well as interviews with playwrights Edward Albee, Sam Shepard, Jean-Claude van Itallie, and John Belluso; writer Susan Sontag; and many others reveal Chaiken's devotion to the stage-a love that even severe aphasia, the result of a stroke, could not diminish. A variety of clips spanning Chaikin's acting/directing career-from his early days, with the Open Theatre and the Living Theatre, to later, post-stroke work, most notably with actors with disabilities-are featured.
