Sleepers is inspired from the Walt Whitman’s poem from his book Leaves of Grass. Set to a reading of the poem, this tender duet uses breathtaking acrobatics and exquisite, unexpected shapes of strength to explore how extraordinary and magical moments can be found in ordinary prosaic experiences. Sleepers is choreographed by Paradizo Dance but was originally conceived, produced, and directed by Circus Boom theater.
In Como Quien Pierde Una Estrella, an “aerial adagio,” Paradizo Dance honors the passion of Latin romantica while pushing the gravity-defying limits of their trademark style.
