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
