Created and performed during the Colleen Lewis Research/Writing Residency at Fresh Milk Barbados, A Paradise Escape? is a recent work that is both a continuation on a previously explored theme, "How to Escape from Paradise", and the inspiration for further experimentation in other media.
The piece is performed through the voices of the Island, the Tourist and the Citizen as they reflect on their past and present romantic entanglements. Their story mirrors the development of the Caribbean and its transformation from a "savage land" into a lush tropical paradise.
