Pieces of Paradise is based on the myth of Androginous, a being who is both male and female in the same body. Zeus, tired of seeing the world corrupted by humans launches thunder and separates man from woman. After this terrible accident begins the eternal journey of each part seeking the other, what is also known as the myth of the twin soul. The show is a reflection on violence, consumerism and the devastation of cultural and natural resources. It is inspired by the infinite iconographies of a land called Brazil. Directed by Idit Herman from Clipa Theatre, Tel aviv – Israel.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
ParaladosanjoS, founded and co-directed by Marcos Becker and Marilia Ennes, are celebrating 20 years of success as a physical and visual theatre company who work indoors and out. They are based in Campinas, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. ParaladosanjoS are a multi-discipline company who have created more than 16 previous shows, some of them in collaboration with other companies, such as Lume Teatro (Brazil), Legs on The Wall (Australia), CONFLUX (Scotland) and Clipa Center of Performance Art (Israel). They also have strong associations with Derevo (Russia), working with the late Dmitry Tyulpanov. Most of their creations are highly physical and visual, often featuring aerial acrobatics and dance. Their work embraces physical and visual theatre, circus, street arts, and site-specific performance and installation. They also currently worked on an extensive site-responsive project in Brazil called Pontes Integradas, creating bridges between isolated coast-dwelling.
