Content / Trigger Description:
David Levine is a former theater director. He bailed when he realized Primary Stages was paying him 45 cents an hour. His work has since since been featured in the New York Times, Artforum, Frieze, and the New Yorker. His holographic film DISSOLUTION will have its American premiere at the Museum of the Moving Image this October.
He is, more relevantly, the co-author of "Re-Public," a manifesto for the overhaul of the Public Theater, commissioned by Theater Magazine in 2005. Shockingly, his suggested reforms still have not been implemented.
