“In Paradise Artists can fly” was created as an experimental musical performance from September to November 2014, with artists from Kosovo and Italy.

In fact, this “new performative context” is experimental and the final result is the consummation of a process of research and harmonization of the entire creative arsenal at our disposal: words, musical instruments, the bodies of musicians/performers, voice, space, images, and other elements.
By collecting words from two different sets of experiences and circumstances, the text aims to become a sign that reflects the differences between a world “being born” and a world “growing old.” What gets born and what grows old in Prishtina and Milan, two cities that served as our runways of research and exploration? The colors of the facades, the customs, the monuments, the parks, the smoke, the movement of people, the landscape, the heads of stray dogs, the walks, the legends, the noise, the running, the yelling, and many other things differ in Prishtina and Milan.
The four scenes of this postdramatic performance do assemble direct experiences, be they paradoxical, comical, irrational, or any other kind. But first and foremost, the scenes are entertaining…
