Til We Meet in England is Lost Text/Found Space’s first full-scale production.
Working in the derelict domestic space of Safehouse in Peckham, Til We Meet in England brings together the rarely performed tragedy, Elizabeth Inchbald’s The Massacre (1792), with live music, audience engagement and movement.
The production explores Inchbald’s intense text, which depicts the experience of a persecuted group of Protestants, as a lens offering a long view of England’s rich past as a place of humanitarianism and refuge.
Working in the intimate, hidden space of Safehouse, Til We Meet in England explores ideas of home and the pain of departure and works with the atmospheres and textures of the site, to create a multi-layered immersive experience.
‘Every work of art that fails to be recognised by the present as one of its own concerns threatens to disappear, irretrievably’ – Walter Benjamin
Lost Text/Found Space work in found sites with rarely performed texts by women, bringing lost voices to new audiences by working across art forms, blending theatre, live music, dance and installation. Their work investigates atmospheres and texture as much as text, creating experiences in which narrative, space and atmosphere intertwine.
The company’s use of hidden spaces and immersive, participatory techniques brings varied audiences together across diverse disciplines, offering rare opportunities to explore unfamiliar spaces and discover unknown stories and voices.
