Joy that makes us want to sing and dance. Joy that makes us believe we can do it all. Just like Elvis.. Even just that one second, when stars and the whole universe ally is worth living for. Hell and Paradise are not places, they're states of mind. And the state of mind is pretty clear: sing and dance. Just like Elvis did: "A little less conversation, a little more action please."
“In Paradiso, Václav Kuneš has created a smart and thrilling composition. The movement is immaculate, truly paradise-like, almost as an original imprint of emotions in the human body. Kuneš’ paradise is serious, even its joy is serious, which makes it both understandable and authentic.”
Nina Vangeli, member of the Czech Dance Platform dramaturgy board
