The Awakening of Baxter Bagley - ENGLISH

A band of college students confront the status quo on the streets and in the cultural and commercial centers of San Francisco. College students from rural New England throw themselves into the fight for liberation and peace, make love not war, power to the people and you are what you eat, are among the cries of their marches and interventions. A novel and memoir of performance artists in SF in 1970.Street theatre, Guerilla theatre, Infiltrative theatre, off the stage and into the streets, innovative performances in tumultuous contexts. Creative responses to the wave of international and racist violence unleashed by Nixon, Kissinger and Hoover. Struggling with the contradictions of the degenerate social order and the destructive processes of capitalism, these young people attempt a full frontal, peaceful assault on the centers of power.In their late teens and early twenties, living communally they awake, they self-realize, they learn to know themselves. Yoga Zazen, psychedelics, ritual dance and collective creation. Our band of creators stretch the limits and refuse to let the “silent majority” dominate the new age, the age of Aquarius. The young people know better, they see with a clear vision and act with an open heart. Arm in arm they raise their fists and demand a new consciousness.Baxter Bagley tries all the ways; he is curious and wants to know. He takes risks and he learns about himself and his creativity. Baxter is full of ideas and visions and faith in the future. He is healthy and resourceful, among friends and making use of his genius. It seems there is nothing that can stand in the way of his knowledge and wisdom. He will run the gauntlet, he will go to the top of the hill, Baxter will live in the here and now. Only betrayal can interrupt the arc of his life and love.
