Live From Paradise

Station House Opera

© Bert Nienhuis
2004 – 2006

Live From Paradise was a co-production with Dutch theatre company De Daders and premiered in Amsterdam in October 2004, performed simultaneously in three apartments across the city.

Live from Paradise was organised in four different phases; in Summer 2005 the project took place for the second time in three UK cities. In each of the three locations the audiences see the live performance along with video streamed from the other two locations, projected on two screens placed side by side.

“First of all, the internet idea is highly original and also executed extremely well. The live performances are fused together in a brilliant way with the internet images of the performers at the other locations. The acting is extremely strong. The players speak alternately in Dutch and English, a result of the co-production, but this is certainly not a problem.”
