Park Square Presents
Theatre in Residence Flying Foot Forum

May 31 – Jun 23, 2019

Created and Directed by Joe Chvala
Music by Chan Poling
Drama / Music / Dance on the Proscenium Stage

Wild dancing, heartbreakingly gorgeous music, and a love story. Follow photographer Peter Adamson on a journey with his translator Faruk to save Faruk’s wife during the Bosnian war in the 1990s. Friendship, love and painfully beautiful moments come to life through heart-stopping percussive dance, Balkan party music performed live by Okestar Bez Ime, and driving songs by Chan Poling (Glensheen, The Suburbs). 


From the Creator and Director:Heaven is a show of sharp contrasts, filled with beautiful music, love stories and raucous dancing, as it brings us inside the violence of the 1990s Bosnian War. It features Orkestar Bez Ime, a Balkan party band, music by Chan Poling, and actors who sing and speak in English and Serbo-Croatian as they tell this cautionary tale of the need to find common ground rather than fight those who are different from us.” –Joe Chvala
