The Lost Boys create daring multi-art events, bold theatrical adventures and innovative education inspired by the arts, literature and cinema, exploring their impact on society.
At the Festival The Lost Boys will be showing ANCESTORIES in their own caravan. This caravan is a travelling cave of interactive digital handprints left behind by community artists and performers, who want to tell you their stories. Their Ancestories… Over a period of nine months, 15 volunteers from different communities across Derby and Derbyshire developed art inspired by their own ancestral DNA, genealogy, and introspective exploration. Their journey was guided by questions; Who are you? Where did you come from? How did you get here? What impact has Derby had on you and have you had on Derby? The work in this exhibition is their response to those questions and the enlightenment they found on their journey of ancestral DNA discovery. So visit the caravan, the cave, and place your own hand on top of theirs and witness their work come to light.
