The Recreational

Birds of Paradise Theatre Company present a new film installation featuring Portuguese dancer Diana Niepce, with Movement Director Rachel Drazek and Filmmaker Hugo Glendinning. It is through Diana’s willingness to uncover something both honest and new that we travelled together as a team. Orbits is a film about how we feel and what we experience when we lose something we have been in orbit or relationship with. How does this change affect our experience of ourselves? Orbits began as a collaboration between the artists in early 2021 during the pandemic and was filmed in Lisbon, December 2022. The film includes stunning original music by Scott Tynholm.
