Paradise or the Impermanence of Ice Cream
Hosted by The Cultch
An Indian Ink (New Zealand) production in association the Cultch, _Paradise or the Impermanence of Ice Cream _runs from March 23 - April 2 at the Historic Theatre (1895 Venables Street, Vancouver). This glorious production is inspired by Ernest Becker’s Pulitzer prize-winning Denial of Death, and the vibrant, life–filled chaos of India’s most cosmopolitan city, Mumbai. Jacob Rajan delivers a dazzling solo performance as he channels seven characters, weaving the afterlife and a dash of Bollywood disco into the real-life mystery of India’s vanishing vultures. A man trying desperately to avoid death is flung between limbo and his past, where a rebellious young woman holds the key that may guide him to paradise. Infused with serious laughter, exquisite puppetry, and inspired sound design, this show is guaranteed to blow your mind and melt your heart.
Audio described performance: The matineé performance on April 2 at 2pm PDT will have live audio description by VocalEye. Please contact The Cultch box office at (604) 251-1363 to reserve tickets and description equipment.
