The Studios 2020

We are familiar with loss in varying shades, from the irritation of losing a favourite pen to the devastation and anger that come with the loss of life or love. Loss, however, is hardly the final word. It exists in tension and symbiosis with "finding"—there seldom is one without the other—and in the middle of these two opposites, we often find hope.

To experience loss is to be human. Yet, the human spirit constantly looks for something in the midst of loss, to create and find something out of what is or was no longer there.

The productions for The Studios 2020 exist within this tension – sifting through the vast lost & found box that is life – collecting and collating its disparate parts, examining our losses, and asking of ourselves what we might find in losing something.
