History of the Australian Performing Group, a democratic theatrical collective that operated out of a former pram factory in Carlton during the 1970s. This first-hand account tells of the characters, politics, lifestyle and operation of this theatre collective via personal interviews with former members of the AGP. Many of Australia's leading playwrights and performers spent their formative with AGP, such as Max Gillies, David Williamson, Graeme Blundell, Evelyn Krape and Greg Pickhaver. Foreword by Helen Garner. Includes photos throughout, appendices, bibliography and index. Jacket Description: "The Australian Performing Group was a democratic theatrical collective operating out of a former pram factory. Its prodigious output of original work, produced amid the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll of Carlton in the 1970s, revived and inspired Australian theatre." "The collective created a theatre in opposition to the script-based, director-dominated conservative norm. It was up-close, non-naturalistic and centred on the presence and skill of the performer. The shows were raw, rough, vernacular, iconoclastic, experimental, tendentious, comical, musical and, from time to time, magical."--BOOK JACKET..
