Conceived in the early days of the pandemic when it was unimaginable, this short film envisages a world in which theatres will never open again. A man explains, to an unseen future generation, what live theatre was - reliving moments that had been particularly powerful to him personally and lamenting the loss of real-life connections in a world where nobody is allowed near one another.
With his unique blend of melancholia and self-deprecating humour, Lost Dog's Ben Duke touches on themes of loneliness and isolation, the loss of human connections, and in particular the temporary community of strangers that make up a theatre audience.
This is an opportunity to spend an hour with Ben on Thurs 26 Nov 4pm to hear more about how he works and what lay behind the making of In a Nutshell, commissioned by The Place and Rural Touring Dance Initiative, supported by Worthing Theatres.
