Richard Foreman

Founder and director of the Ontological-Hysteric Theater, Richard Foreman is a major figure in the avant-garde theater. His stylized plays create tension between spoken language and visual tableaux, eschewing dramatic narrative action. In the 1970s he translated his theatrical work to video, creating several provocative pieces that are minimalist in form but complex in their labyrinthine layers of textual meaning.   full biography
