SOME PARADISES

Bo / Kevin Jean, 2015

Some Paradises is…
A celebration of coming back to ground.
The creation of new worlds where it is possible to live together and exchange freely.
A jungle’s peep show.
A dive into narrow or empty spaces in order to expand, share, defend and shake them. A party, a revolt.
An idea of insularity.
A stirring of distant memories.
Love in abundance.
A reflection on the cramped spaces that can define our daily lives. A way to live gently.
A means to find one’s place through serenity and trust, pleasure and simplicity.

Some Paradises is…
A piece about dreams and a glimpse of hope.
A trio about the existence of the ‘heavenly’ and our power to create it, every day. A piece on cooperation, shared responsibility, and collective intelligence.

“Here is a simple benevolence, a generous attentiveness to the other. The nudity follows perfectly from what comes before it in the piece: an infinitely patient unfolding of gestures, resonant with the evidence of their link to the environment; movements that are attentive to the space and its other inhabitants, rather than seeking to occupy it. Without doubt an idea of a potential paradise.”
Gérard Mayen in Ball Room n°10, June-August 2016
