Paradiso Horniman Mela

Akademi’s Paradiso: Man’s enduring search for perfection goes to the Horniman Mela on 3 September 2017. Performances at 12.25 and 13.45.

 

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

Paradiso: Man’s Enduring Search for Perfection brings together an international creative team and a diverse cast to produce a sensual, earthly choreography. Inspired by the final part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, this 40-minute dance production shares common human struggles performed in an energetic celebration of dance.

Take passage through the heavenly cosmos and find answers to the obstacles of vanity, ambition and desire.

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
