THE (NEW) TRIAL to Run 9/1-6 at Theater for the New CityTHE (NEW) TRIAL to Run 9/1-6 at Theater for the New City
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2015

After the huge success of Marat/Sade, an experimental play by the celebrated German playwright Peter Weiss (Tony Award and New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Broadway production in 1965), a newly formed international theatre ensemble, directed and led by Dennis Yueh-Yeh Li, Artistic Associate of The Living Theatre, will bring Weiss's last play The New Trial to life. With an original adaptation, titled The (New) Trial, the production is intended as an homage that celebrates Weiss's 100th birthday and his theatrical legacy. The adaptation will be presented in the genre of experimental theatre in English and German, attempting to re-introduce Weiss's aesthetics and German post-war theatre to American audiences. The (New) Trial is partially funded by the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan, and made possible by Label Gray and The Living Theatre. (more...)

THE NEW TRIAL Set for Dream Up FestivalTHE NEW TRIAL Set for Dream Up Festival
by BWW News Desk - Aug 12, 2015

'The (New) Trial' is a radical version of 'The New Trial' by Peter Weiss (1916-1982), adapted and directed by Dennis Yueh-Yeh Li. The play experiments with identity and power-relations, presenting a surreal look at the life of K, the chief attorney in an international corporation. The play explores K's obsessive idealism and his self-destructive methodology in helping others. Confined in his own docile body, K is manipulated as the public mask for the corporation to win the 'war' over current global market expansion and eventually is abandoned by the corporation once the victory is obtained. 'The (New) Trial' will have its world premiere September 1 to September 6 as part of Theater for the New City's 2015 Dream Up Festival. (more...)
