A contemporary spin on the ancient art of silent physical comedy, asking big questions without saying a word.

From the world-renowned makers of Air Play, comes a new comic fantasia replete with spectacular beauty, metaphor, and humor.

It’s the end of the world. 

Or the beginning of a new one.

Two scavengers try to make sense of a senseless world while goldfish swim for their lives, rubber ducks are worshipped and abandoned and crows cry.  Piles of smoking tires, mountains of metal wobble, and waterfalls of plastic create surreal playscapes. Riotously funny and visually beautiful, PARADISE is modern parable for an unnatural age.

Duration: 65 minutes.  No intermission. Ages 10 to extinction.
