In 2011, CaDance showed the seductive and ambiguous you PARA|DISO, the last of the four-part work based on Dante’s cycle La Divina Commedia (The Divine Comedy). Now, Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten return with a revision of this piece, in which they search for paradise with open minds. Six dancers are on a journey to the Hereafter. They seduce each other in a monumental white world full of immeasurable bliss, but ambiguity is waiting round the corner. Paradise is great, but it is also fragile and filled with static lifelessness. It shows many faces, all of them as beautiful as they are terrifying.
