'Lost Lear' by Dan Colley is a thought provoking meditation on theatre, artifice and the possibility of communicating across the chasms between us.
A moving and darkly comic remix of Shakespeare's play told from the point of view of Joy, a person with dementia, who is living in an old memory of rehearsing 'King Lear'. This very very loose adaptation of King Lear, examines the self and that part of us that's inaccessible to others. Using puppetry, projection and live video effects, the audience are landed in this world as layers of past and present, fiction and reality, overlap and distort.
