PARADISE follows an Angel who falls from a pole that connects the Infinite (heaven) to a terrain called PARADISE. In a tale that evokes a new queer Black mythology, the Falling Angel navigates a world of gravity, demigods and beasts on her quest to return to the Infinite.
Conceived and directed by India Davis, PARADISE is a trilogy produced over three years. Each installment of the story is told through a full length multidisciplinary production that utilizes acrobatic, pole and aerial dance, vogue, theater, shadow puppetry and film. PARADISE (part 1) debuted in June 2016. The second installment, PARADISE, Return to Aja played in June 2017, and the final production, PARADISE, Belly of the Beast, will be staged in May 2018.
