“A story about loneliness through the eyes of Gloria, a transvestite superstar in the search for the meaning of life, with two results. Theater and Film ♡”
Paradise under the feet is a project of artistic collaborations born from the need to create a sense to life with two results: A theatrical stage experience and short film freely distributed on the Internet.
The main objective is to create an immersive and inclusive space that fosters empathy , inaddition to reflection on issues like loneliness , sense of life, self - esteem, discrimination, self - destruction and others who followed affect the homosexual condition , transgender and sexual diversity, but they are equally shared by the universal human condition.
We believe in art that speaks to the audience directly, we believe that our obligation is to provide quality products for creating awareness and entertainment . We believe the hearing should be taken into account for the development of work, out of selfishness that is so characteristic of the artist and reverse roles so that the work conforms to the public and not vice versa. We want out of conventional public theater to reach people who use other means. We seek the professionalization of young art , discuss the issues pertaining to the generations that grew up under new paradigms.
The central character - Gloria - part of the solitude to the search for the meaning of a life that apparently does not, so he decides to take his hedonism to the limits of self - destruction among vices, sex, wealth and fame, same as the lead the edge of life and death. In this work it is proposed to face the vacuum by means of self - love under the slogan that loneliness is eternal and shared by all, and that the glory is to enjoy the absolute present through each of the senses, which are the ones we they know ourselves alive.
The aesthetic discourse has the characteristic of being structured in several languages by homages and references to various artists, geniuses and personalities that somehow relate to the work either according to the subjectivity of the author for his poetic and intellectual values (between They found Pedro Almodóvar, Paul Auster, Robert Fripp, Stephen Hawking, Virginia Woolf …), or because the item gives a fun and dynamic to work (as Daul Kim or stars RuPaul) language.
