Oscillating between a children’s rhyme, a pop song, and a Skaldic poem, the performance Poison Paradise smacks against the high waves of romantic symbolism surrounding a sunset boat ride. By weaving together (mis)quotes by female icons and personal romantic encounters, we’re cruising through bittersweet anecdotes on contemporary love, rage, and attraction from a queer, femme perspective.
