CHILDREN OF PARADISE

Genre: Other

The classic French film of this name, shot in the early 1940's, was a fictional biography of a Mime, Debureau, who lived and performed in Paris in the 1840's, and was the first one to use Pierrot as the leading character instead of Harlequin.This play is based on Debureu’s actual biography, and includes Mime pieces he did that were written down by his son over 150 years ago, parts of which were performed in the film. With a company of 14 Mime/Actor/Gymnasts, headed by Chris Douros, with music by Harrison Wade, the action-filled play gives us a look at a little-known time, in the life of an artist pursuing a little known Art.
