Heaven Into Hell, Hell into Heaven

“The mind is its own place, and in itself

Can make a heav’n of hell, a hell of heav’n.”

Paradise Lost by Frances Wynne

I hear its murmurous ripples ebb and flow.
Around me, ranging proudly row on row,
The dreamy purple-crested mountains rise. 106 more words

BARE WITNESS TO MILTON'S EPIC AT ADELAIDE FRINGE

Marking the 350th anniversary of John Milton’s epic poetic masterpiece, Paradise Lost, is Christopher Samuel Carroll’s visceral one-man show.

The Irish actor fuses the esoteric Japanese dance style of Butoh with classic English literature in what has described by critics as “a performance that is as beguiling and mesmerizing as the epic grandeur of Milton’s swelling tale…a tour de force display of the actor’s craft”, “a culturally shattering event”, and “a bravura performance”, receiving 4.5 stars from the West Australian and a nomination for the best theatre award at Fringe World 2017. 194 more words
