One of the key productions by the group led by Julian Beck and Judith Malina, Frankenstein, was conceived during the years they roamed Europe, and premiered at La Biennale di Venezia in 1965, at the 24th International Theatre Festival directed by Wladimiro Dorigo. Ten years after the work that represented the cutting edge of avant-garde theatre, The Living Theatre returned to the Biennale Teatro at the invitation of Luca Ronconi for the Laboratorio internazionale in 1975. The idea of theatre as a process was developed in a series of actions that composed the trilogy titled The Legacy of Cain: with the Six Public Acts that proceed through the streets of Venice like the Stations of the Cross, The Money Tower and Seven Meditations on Political Sado-Masochism presented in the deconsecrated church of San Lorenzo.
