The montage of Cia. Espaço Blank, winner of the 2017 Azorean Prize for Best Show and Best Actor for Andrew Tassinari, addresses the complex theme of death by telling the story of a young artist, long-dead victim of HIV, who returns from darkness to settle accounts with his family and heteronormative society.

SILVER-PARADISE is an eschatology in the mythical sense, a gay fable about the end of man and civilization. A politically sharp extravaganza, nourished by the glorious and contagious blood of the QUEER artists to whom we pay homage. In it, the director JdR radicalizes his relationship with the theater itself, bringing to the apex issues present in his previous productions - the underground attitude of do-it-yourself and the interferences caused by other media, which mix and deepen the performance. The fleshy and technological scene is an invitation to the active imagination of the spectators.
