PARADIS Choreography by Catherine Gaudet

A picnic. An inflatable character. A flying tablecloth. Magic birds. A face. A thousand faces. A tsunami. Chernobyl. A vision of horror. Welcome to a strange celebration, to a small, ambiguous moment of existence, to a minute that is worth one hundred, to an expanding world, to a nostalgia for paradise grating against reality.
