A very bright new voice in dance theatre.
Lost Dog can stake a fair claim to be the most promising talents to emerge on the
British Dance scene over the last year.
Keith Watson. Dance Now.
Beautifully orchestrated…and thoroughly entertaining.
Rarely has the treadmill of everyday life been jammed so forcibly and with such genuine emotion…
performed by Ben Duke and Raquel Meseguer with total commitment and taut skill…
Stylistically, it is as much dance as it is theatre – as much theatre as it is dance.
Words are used when they are needed and when the body can tell the story more effectively, it does.
Total Theatre Magazine
Simultaneously raw and slick, Lost Dog have created a work that hits the mark on every level.
It's a fascinating narrative process, subtle and engaging,
plus the audience gets to do some of the work…they're on to a great idea.
…the dance…is beautifully handled,
especially in those slippery moments when a caress turns possessive or reassurances become a threat.
Ben Duke and Raquel Meseguer are mesmerizing to watch. The tense choreography… is superbly executed.
British Theatre Guide
A profoundly perverse and twisted tale of anti-love,
this is one concentrated dose of powerful dance theatre - handle with care.
…Duke and Meseguer's highly theatrical and subversively humorous style,
marked by keen ears for a good rock tune, is a welcome change from the derivative fare peddled by their peers.
A brave foray into the dark underbelly of the real world
