August 5

Paradiso

Akademi’s Paradiso : Man’s enduring search for perfection goes to Pier Parade, North Woolwich on 5 August 2017.

 

“I have been to Paradise and this is what I saw…”

Embody Dante and make your ascent into the celestial.

Inspired by his journey; orbit the heavens to find eternal enlightenment. Take passage through the heavenly cosmos and find answers to the obstacles of vanity, ambition and desire. These shared human struggles are performed in an energetic celebration of dance.

This interpretation of the third part of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy is produced by Akademi, with direction and choreography by Jose Agudo, it features an original score by Bernhard Schimpelsberger.

“Turn your gaze heavenward and leave this restless world behind.”

Dante Alighieri, Divine Comedy
