ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: LOST GENERATION

Lost Generation is a collaboration between Collision Dance Theatre and the film production company Sonder. The film explores the fundamentals of human connection in a dystopia where the global climate crisis has become detrimental to the world. The film follows the dancers; Emma Holt, Ferghas Clavey, Niamh McBride, Henry Morris, Charlie Nayler and Jon Werede Hope as they return to animalistic habits of care and affection. Accompanied by an original music score created by composer Andrew Marriott and an original poem written by Philly Felton the film aims to highlight the importance of helping those in need and the power of a co-working society. 

We hope the film helps spread an awareness around the mental wellbeing of the younger generation by creating positive and open conversations. The biggest issue is the reluctancy to reach out for help. Maybe there was a strange sense of failure attached with asking others. This film highlights the strength in accepting the hand offered.

The topic of climate change, much like the topic of mental health, is often overlooked because we often fear something that we can`t quite understand or know how to overcome. It feels like we are so far from solving the problem that we ignore it entirely. So, we hope the film allows people to begin to understand that these issues in society are not going away because we simply turn an eye to it and that the accumulation of voices and actions is a step forward in tackling the issues at hand. The film is a gentle reminder to ourselves that the freedom of being outdoors and the longing for human connection were what we valued the most during this lockdown period and as we move forward they should continue to hold value.
