Paradise or the Impermanence of Ice Cream


Take a wild ride to paradise with Indian Ink’s powerful new play about impermanence – of life, love … and ice cream!

Written by Jacob Rajan and Justin lewis, this production is inspired by Ernest Becker’s Pulitzer prize-winning “Denial of Death,” and the vibrant, life–filled chaos of India’s most cosmopolitan city, Mumbai.   

Jacob Rajan delivers a dazzling solo performance as he channels seven characters, weaving the afterlife and a dash of Bollywood disco into the real life mystery of India’s vanishing vultures. 

A man trying desperately to avoid death is flung between limbo and his past where a rebellious young woman holds the key that may guide him to paradise. 

Infused with serious laughterexquisite puppetry and inspired sound design this show is guaranteed to blow your mind and melt your heart.  

This production opens it's national tour in Wellington on 20 May 2021, and will then go onto Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Upper Hutt, Kāptiti, Nelson, Ōamaru, Dunedin and Christchurch.
