In 1968, The Living Theatre, led by Julian Beck and Judith Malina, triumphantly returned to America from years of self-imposed exile in Europe with their theatrical breakthrough Paradise Now. The play introduces the practice of collective creation, dissolving the boundaries of human interactions and forging a harmony between the actors and audience. Of this process, Julian Beck writes, Collective creation is the secret weapon of the people ... This play is a voyage from the many to the one and from the one to the many. Its a spiritual voyage and a political voyage, a voyage for the actors and the spectators. The play is a vertical ascent toward permanent revolution, leading to revolutionary action here and now. The revolution of which the play speaks is the beautiful, non-violent, anarchist revolution. The purpose of the play is to lead to a state of being in which non-violent revolutionary action is possible. The result of this shared voyage is the spontaneous creation of a temporary anarchist collective -- free from the enslavements of war, violence, the State, money and the self."-Arthur.
