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. 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.
Fronted by its highly individual, accomplished Artistic Director BEN DUKE (GSA Alumni), Paradise Lost recently hit the jackpot with 5 star reviews and capacity audiences for the coruscating dance/theatre production, which has been gaining momentum since its premiere at Battersea Arts Centre in May 2015. Premiered in May, Paradise Lost went on to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award (Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form category).
