Pave Up Paradise
Lost Dog's first work, Pave up Paradise, was bought and toured by Phoenix Dance Theatre as part of its Stories in Red 25th anniversary mixed bill.
Pave Up Paradise is a witty take on the story of Adam and Eve. This work for two dancers captures all the drama and emotion of love, guilt and sexuality. Accompanied live on stage by a musician playing acoustic versions of hits by Jeff Buckley, The Strokes and Gomez, Pave Up Paradise is a story of biblical proportions that keeps its tongue firmly placed in its cheek.
The Lost Dog devised piece won the first prize at the Burgos International Choreography competition in July 2004 and second prize at the prestigious Hanover choreography competition.
The show was then bought and toured by Phoenix Dance Theatre as part of its Stories in Red 25th anniversary mixed bill. Pave Up Paradise was then first performed by Phoenix Dance Theatre in 2006 to acclaim from critics and audiences alike.
