Cast and Crew
Jack Kerouac. William S. Burroughs. Allen Ginsberg. Three of the greatest American writers...and the dark, shared secret of their youth.
Based off of text, letters, and journal entries that have only recently come to light, "Beat." tells the complicated story of Lucien Carr and David Kammerer, whose murder rocked the friendship group of "The Beat Writers" and scandalized the nation. Utilizing ensemble-created movement, original music, and rhythmic poetry, "Beat." asks the question - when our complicated lives end, who gets to tell our story?
"Beat." is conceived and produced by W.A.R. Theater. Winners of the 2017 Southern Theater encore for "De Hjertelose", this is W.A.R. Theater's 3rd MN Fringe production, and 4th overall. W.A.R. Theater is a Minneapolis-based company founded in 2015 by Michael Johnson and Elliott Heerman that specializes in new, physical performance art.
"Channeling the W.A.R. of the individual to serve the community."
