CW // Mental health issues, pandemic
Lost Connection is a new devised dance piece written by Felix Westcott, with original score by Will Harmer. The story follows a dancer stuck in lockdown, unable to dance, to be creative, and to express themselves. It is the story of many of us, and a discussion on the challenges encountered by the arts industry in the past year.
Lost Connection has been filmed remotely during the multiple lockdowns, with a final in-person segment at the Oxford Playhouse. Lost Connection premiered online on June 27th, 2021.
