American Avant-Garde Theatre offers a definition of the avant-garde, and looks at its origins and theoretical foundations by examining Gertrude Stein, John Cage, The Beat Writers, Avant-Garde Cinema, Abstract Expressionism, and Minimalism. There are fascinating discussions and illustrations of the productions of the Living Theatre, the Wooster Group, Open Theatre, Ontological-Hysteric Theatre and Performance Group. among many others. Aronson also examines why avant-garde theatre declined and virtually disappeared at the end of the twentieth century.
