A living theatre must possess five fundamental qualities.- It must be identifiable as an entity and organism, in the same way that you can recognize a person by certain characteristics and physical presence that mark a personal life.It must be able to hold onto one or more of its fundamentals. It could be a permanent place, leadership, repertory, idea, or any combination of these three. But they must have something that is solid and rooted in the transitory theatre world where performers die each day as they are set up, played through, and struck.It must be able to grow, it must be able to make progress in both its permanent and impermanent elements, as time changes and it must adapt with them.It must possess the power of generation within itself, the element of renewal. This force, which has flowed from its inner strength and integrity, can give back strength to a newer, more youthful world.It must also have a primary goal, such as a theatre goal. The leader of a good theatre shouldn't be able to make money, power or gain preferment. These are side effects of theatre success and not essential theatre goals. They must be linked to the performance and exaltation of theatre's inherent power of entertainment, persuasion, edification and exaltation.
