WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble, in association with Greenway Arts Alliance, presents a movement adaptation of John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost. The innovative vision, adapted by NMA co-artistic director Jones (Welsh) Talmadge and codirected with NMA co-artistic director Laura Covelli, blends dance, acrobatics, dynamic partnering, and NMA's unique brand of physical storytelling in an original version of this iconic tale of Adam and Eve's temptation and the war in heaven.
Paradise Lost: Reclaiming Destiny features bodies flying across the stage on harness and chains, augmented by the stunning and unique live digital animation effects of J-Walt Adamczyk and video installation artist Hannah Beavers. While the performance ensemble battles as angels and demons, powerful visual images of the creation of the universe and the Garden of Eden are projected onstage to weave an emotional tale surrounded by evocative original music and costumes.
