There 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. It’s a show for anyone who has created anything (child, garden, paper, aeroplane)
and then watched it spiral out of control.

★★★★★ The comedy is divine, but the images of love and loss are achingly human”. The Independent

Lost Dog was formed in 2004 by Ben Duke and Raquel Meseguer with the aim of creating work that is both theatre and dance. The company works with text, live music and movement, and blends these elements to create work in which dance is framed by stories and characters. Ben Duke is a Work Place artist, the associate artists programme of The Place.

Paradise Lost has been touring since its premiere at Battersea Arts Centre in May 2015 and was nominated for a Total Theatre Awards 2015 (Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form category). It is co-commissioned by The Place and Battersea Arts Centre with further commissioning support from ICIA Bath University, and developed with support from The Point, Eastleigh and South East Dance. Paradise Lost is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
