KILL MOVE PARADISE FUNDRAISER FOR BLM PHILLY BY JAMES IJAMES DIRECTED BY BLANKA ZIZKA
ORIGINALLY PRODUCED AT THE WILMA THEATER IN PHILADELPHIA, SEPTEMBER 2018
James Ijames’ New York Times Critics’ Pick play Kill Move Paradise tells the story of Isa, Daz, Grif, and Tiny, four Black men who find themselves stuck in a cosmic waiting room in the afterlife. Inspired by the ever growing list of slain unarmed Black people, this play depicts these men as symbols of life and hope. Gone but never forgotten, Kill Move Paradise illustrates the possibilities of collective transformation and radical acts of joy.
