Paradise Lost

Lost Dog

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 epic poem Paradise Lost, told through words, music and the easily misunderstood medium of dance.

A show for anyone who has ever created anything (a child, a garden, a paper aeroplane) and then had to watch that wonderful thing spiral out of control.

The comedy is divine, but the images of love and loss are achingly human

★★★★★ The Independent

A heavenly new take on Milton

★★★★★ Evening Standard
