a combining of theatre, comedy and movement

Lost Dog, the dance and theatre company is fronted by its artistic director Ben Duke whose self-penned Paradise Lost has been performing to audiences for over a year.

A one-man staging of Milton’s epic Paradise Lost, combining theatre, comedy and movement this is a journey through the story of the creation of everything condensed into 80 minutes, beginning with Lucifer’s rebellion and ending with Adam and Eve’s expulsion from The Garden of Eden.

Mr Duke plays all the characters, creates all the scenes and, despite his best efforts, falls a little short of perfection.

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

The show is coming to University of Kent’s Gulbenkian on December 1.

“I’m really looking forward to performing at the Gulbenkian at Kent University for the first time,” says Ben Duke. “I’ve heard a lot about the venue from fellow performers and am delighted to finally have the chance to bring ‘Paradise Lost’ to such a beautiful space. It’s great that so many universities now have professional theatre spaces – it’s a wonderful way to bring live arts to a wider audience.”
