Paradiso is the magical place where old people turn back into babies. Here, death is not the end – it’s the beginning of the circle of life. Presented by the renowned Georgian puppetry company, Our Theatre, this wordless production combines puppetry and music, and a fantastic cast who will move the audience to laughter and tears.
Noting the lack of visibility of Georgian theatre in the UK, Performance Infinity met Our Theatre and then decided to produce its PARADISO in the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe. A large proportion of the European population is made up of elderly people, and yet we still find it difficult to talk about ageing and death. Our Theatre’s PARADISO addresses this important topic in today’s society and reveals the deep insights of how we embrace the late stages of our life.
The production gained positive feedback from audiences and played a significant role in increasing the diversity of theatre’s works.
