The Paradise Factory is bringing the rigor of theatrical discipline to the process of cinematic art, and bringing the intimacy and immediacy of the cinema into theatrical performance art. Not with any technological innovation or modern gravitas – we do this with a respect to the structure of storytelling, to the integrity of the written word, and to the discipline of a thorough and deep rehearsal process.
