WE, THE LOST COMPANY BY CLOCKFIRE THEATRE COMPANY – ON DEMAND
A wildly inventive gallery of physical theatre, inspired by mother nature’s most mysterious element and bound with a special familiarity.
Physical theatre company Clockfire present their new Australian production we, the lost company, an adaptation, a moving poetic tribute to mother nature’s most mysterious element. Exploring the migratory nature of the ocean and the power of recollection, bodies raw, branded with enduring sunburn, unfurl and contract in a space which overflows with echoes of the past and predictions for our future.
Inspired by acclaimed Australian artist Brett Whiteley’s beach paintings, this original gallery of movement spans a shoreline of mnemonic encounters that collide with a tide that disturbs and reorganises. Adapted for film by Laura Turner with performance direction by Emily Ayoub, performed by Madeline Baghurst, Ryuichi Fujimura and Alicia Gonzalez and accompanied by Ben Pierpoint’s original soundtrack, we, the lost company paints a timeless coastline, blue and bound with a special familiarity.

“…we are all embroiled in this mysterious undertaking as one… revelling in the beauty of abstraction but powerfully connecting with its audience… The production is full of adventure… we, the lost company has vocabularies of its own that are refreshing, unique…but what it speaks can be understood by all” – Suzy Wrong, SUZY GOES SEE
“The ensemble nature of the creation process gives the work it’s clear and distant longing… It is a fluid and transformative experience.” – Judith Greenaway, SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE
