During her travels, actrice and playwright Jessa Wildemeersch has interviewed divers people about their vision on the afterlife. In Paradise Blues, she has interlaced the stories she collected with inspiring philosophical outlooks. Accompanied by the warm compositions by harmonica maestro Steven De bruyn (The Rhythm Junks and El Fish), she moves between different worlds. Paradise Blues walks a tightrope between urban myth and universal stories, an uppercut with consolation.
With theatre company Het Nieuwstedelijk, Jessa has made Dagen zonder data. With Paradise Blues she continues down the same path. This time, she reinforces her associative narrative style by means of a solid dose of live music. This is visual, impressive and vibrant musical theatre!
