The Living Theatre’s ‘Paradise now’ (1968-2018) is a legendary performance with 13 youngsters. Using this performance as a starting point, Michiel Vandevelde teams up with a new generation of youngsters, ready to take note of the ways the world changed these last 50 years. What remains of the questions, desires and values of the sixties? How were ideas developed during the past years? How do the youngsters perceive this history and how do they envisage their future? In this new creation Vandevelde looks back in order to look ahead. Scanning the past 50 years in a wild choreography of iconic images acted out by young bodies, a horizon of possibilities might occur.
