    About

    Directed by George Mann

    We are delighted to present multi award-winning, Bristol based company Theatre Ad Infinitum and their powerful play about a moving journey of life, death and enduring love.

    After his wife passes away, William escapes to a paradise of fantasy and past memories, a place far from the reality of his grief. Returning from beyond the grave, Rose revisits her widowed companion to perform one last act of love: to help him let go.

    Using a live accordion accompaniment and masks from Madam Toussaud’s senior sculptor Victoria Beaton, Translunar Paradise is an exquisite piece of mask and movement theatre which was a multi award-winning, critically acclaimed sell out at the 2011 and 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It has played at the Barbican as part of the London International Mime Festival, and has toured throughout the UK and to more than 20 countries internationally. It is also the winner of 8
    international theatre awards.

    George Mann is Associate Director of Bristol Old Vic, recently co-directing the critically acclaimed Pink Mist which is currently touring the UK. George shares all on the international tour in our latest blog, Translunar Paradise: Tales from the Tour.

    The production has no spoken dialogue and so is fully accessible to deaf and hearing-impaired audiences.
