Paradise Lost: Reclaiming Destiny

Paradise Lost: Reclaiming Destiny

Greenway Arts Alliance and Not Man Apart present


Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble and Greenway Arts Alliance present a movement adaptation of John Milton’s eloquent epic poem: Paradise Lost. The innovative vision adapted by NMA Co-Artistic Director Jones (Welsh) Talmadge, Co-directed with NMA Co-Artistic Director Laura Covelli, blends dance, acrobatics, dynamic partnering and Not Man Apart’s unique brand of physical storytelling, to relate a version of this iconic tale of Adam and Eve’s Temptation and the War in Heaven.

This production features bodies flying across the stage on harness and chains, augmented by the stunning 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 will be projected live on stage to weave an emotional tale surrounded by evocative original music and costumes.

NMA’s retelling of the fall of humanity includes a modern feminist twist. Whether you are familiar with the story of Paradise Lost, or not at all, and regardless of your belief system, Paradise Lost: Reclaiming Destiny seeks a new perspective on the future of humanity, and to empower audiences to fully claim a created destiny and connection to the whole. It’s up to us. We get to create a Heaven on Earth.
