Paradise Lost (Lies Unopened Beside Me) - T605443748A one man staging of Milton's epic Paradise Lost. Forget whatever came into your head when you read that and prepare to be surprised, to laugh out loud, to be moved. And much more. Combining theatre, comedy and movement this is a journey through the story of the creation of everything condensed into 75 minutes. A show which brings you the highlights of this well known but often forgotten story beginning with Lucifer's rebellion and ending with Adam and Eve's expulsion from Eden, edging awkwardly through God's rather cramped galley kitchen along the way.Company Lost Dog.

Paradise Lost (Lies Unopened Beside Me) - T1906852308There is a possibility that God made everything because he was terrified of doing nothing. Here is a re-telling of the story of the beginning of everything inspired by Milton's Paradise Lost - told through words, music and the easily misunderstood medium of dance. You should come and see it if you're a father (or a mother), if you've created something that you've had to let go, or if you'd like to see God and Satan flirting. Lost Dog is an award winning dance theatre company led by Ben Duke. Ben Duke is a Work Place artist.Book by John Milton. Lighting Jackie Shemesh. Design Jackie Shemesh.

Like Rabbits - T0269588620In this quietly devastating new work for two performers inspired by Virginia Woolf's short story Lappin and Lapinova, a man and a woman meet and have sex and fall deeply in love. Each night the lovers slip away from their real lives into a world that exists only in their shared imagination: a world that belongs to them, in which tax returns and shopping lists and commuting do not exist; a world in which they are not their normal selves, but King of the Rabbits and Queen of the Hares. But what begins as a game soon becomes a battleground, and the couple hurtle towards a tragedy of the saddest, and most ordinary kind. Devised by Ben Duke in collaboration with Lucy Kirkwood. Duration: 75minsPresented byLost Dog. Presented byLucy Kirkwood. Lighting Jackie Shemesh. Design Jackie Shemesh. Costume Holly Waddington. Performer Ino Riga. Performer Ben Duke.

It Needs Horses/Home for Broken Turns - T1270373477It Needs Horses tells the tale of a down at heel circus duet and their increasingly desperate attempts to entertain the crowd. The glamour has faded, the performers have forgotten their acts, but the show must go on. Home for Broken Turns follows the characters from this disastrous double act as they leave the circus ring for the last time. Inspired by Luigi Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author, it looks at how fictional characters continue to exist even after the piece that called them into existence has finished. The Home for Broken Turns is where these characters gather, watched over by a fierce matriarch who is both protector and pimp for these lost children of the theatre.Performer Anna Finkel. Performer Chris Evans.

Hungry Ghosts - T01429424013Hungry Ghosts is a dynamic twisted telling of one man's night out at the theatre. The show explores the moment our life crosses from the real to the surreal as a theatregoer struggles to understand how he became an unwilling performer in someone else's terrifying show. He thought he was just getting ready for a night out but it seems his preparations were for something much bigger; his reluctant debut, or even his own death. [Lost Dog]'s unique combination of dance, theatre and live music come together in this highly original new work to tell the story of a man's journey through a tragically theatrical act of terrorism. As the sole survivor he is haunted by the stories of those who didn't make it and is desperate to find sense in this nonsensical act. A darkly funny and moving piece of dance theatre. Running time 1 hourPerformer Ben Duke. Performer Donatella Cabras. Performer Sarah Dowling. Performer Leo Kay. Performer Laura Wheatley. Music jamie McCarthy. Choreographer Ben Duke.
