In 2009, Co-founder of Lost Dog, Ben Duke attended ‘The Electric Body’, a 12 day ‘Creative Campus’, organised by The European Network of Performing Arts (ENPARTS) to run alongside the Venice Biennale’s International Festival of Contemporary Music. During the workshop he collaborated on ‘Discombobulator’, a short multi-media work, featuring video projection, live electronic composition and computer generated imagery. Having premiered in Venice as part of the music festival, the piece was selected to feature in the Dance Umbrella festival 2010.
Discombobulator formed part of Dance Umbrella’s 2010 Brief Encounters series, in which short works by talented new choreographers or established artists are performed prior to main stage shows. It was performed in The Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room before performances of a Trisha Brown Repertory Evening.
