Kill Move Paradise
By James Ijames
Directed by Danielle Drakes
February 20–March 8, 2020
“Kill Move Paradise” takes the Elysium of Greek antiquity and flips the script. Set in a cosmic waiting room in the afterlife prepared for its newly deceased inhabitants, we follow Isa, Daz, Grif and Tiny as they try to make sense of the world they have been untimely ripped from. Inspired by ever growing list of slain unarmed black men and women, “Kill Move Paradise” is an expressionistic buzz saw through the contemporary myth that "all lives matter" and a portrait of the slain, not as degenerates who deserved death but as heroes who demand that we see them for the splendid beings they are.
“Radiates an urgent and hypnotic theatrical energy.” The New York Times
