“Pastime paradise” — is a performance about the gone childhood, about the “winged swings” that take your reminiscences away; the swings that can bring you back to the “Pastime paradise” if you manage to catch them.
“Almost all the “Dialogue Dance” Company’s performances are dealing with the theme of love to a certain extent”, claim the dancers themselves. And the same goes for the “Pastime paradise” — it’s a performance about love and happiness. The big challenge for the performers is to stay unpredictable and surprising for the whole time of the show yet to stay synchronized in their work with the hardest dancing material. Pastime paradise is not a dancing performance per se, it’s a non-verbal, physical theatre where the structure of movement is a lot harder than the dance, where all the potential of body and one’s physical capacities are needed to the full.
