Synopsis : The world was a paradise.
In this paradise women ruled.
There were no possessions, no war and violence.
Eroticism was not a taboo and there was freedom and tolerance.

Paradise is the extraordinary result of a collaboration between the Dutch-Indonesian theatre maker Gerard Mosterd and the world renowned Sumatran, Bessie Award winning choreographer Boi G Sakti.

An international group, consisting of four Indonesian, one Japanese and two Dutch dancers perform the patterns of Sakti and Mosterd. Sakti takes his starting point from an old Minangkabau myth. [Bundo Kanduang] His dance material moves from the feminine to the masculine until a balance between the two arises. Mosterd’s work follows three dancers who start from a vertically oriented world and reach a point at which a division between head and body asserts itself. This sets a search for the earthly, the feminine in motion.

Solidarity and isolation, interpersonal relationships, the manifestation of the individual in the surrounding world, are dealt with in a production where contemporary dance weaves itself in equal measure both naturally as well as surprisingly with the music of Minang composer Dony Irawan. These acoustic, contemporary compositions using traditional rhythmic patterns from matriarchal West Sumatra are performed on self-made, original instruments and combined with the equally self-made and original electronic sounds of the composer Paul Goodman.

An important role is set aside for the work of the multimedia artist Wilhelmusvlug. We see imagination quickening video projections wherein the dancers sometimes function as living film screens.
