Gerald’s illustrations as an object devoid of function, occasionally closed or broken, as in the 1983 illustration for a New York Times editorial. It might be convenient to recall that this very same broken umbrella makes another appearance in the poster a Beckett trilogy (Theater 1, Theater 2 and That Time), directed by Gerald in 1985, which featured a performance by none other than Julian Beck – founder of the legendary Living Theater, who played Tiresias in Pasolini’s Oedipus Rex – in his only theatrical foray outside his own company. To paraphrase the ending of Casablanca, it was just the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Many other partnerships lay ahead: Philip Glass, Heiner Muller, Luciano Berio, and Haroldo de Campos. The list of names is so long that it would not fit in this book.
