PARAMISA - Cunning stupid Roma

A gypsy-and-whiteman goulash from the Líšeň pot

A wild and energetic stage mishmash Paramisa came into existence as a creative encounter between the Líšeň company and Roma artists - musicians, actors and dancers.

The play tells the tale of a Roma boy, who found the love of his life and ventured to fight the dragon for her. Although he was torn to a thousand pieces by it, he was fi nally lucky
enough to get what he wanted. And even more.

The word paramisa may be translated as fairytales.
This, however, fails to capture its exact meaning. In the Roma
context, paramisa are addressed predominantly to adults and serve
as a metaphor for the twisted and mostly unpredictable nature
of real life, in which not every love ends happily and not every hero wins thanks to their abilities.
This is the spirit of the Líšeň Theatre production.
