Paradise Lost (Lies Unopened Beside Me)

APPROVED Lead image (c) Zoe Manders small version.jpeg




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.
