Tom Allen and Jeff Reilly’s Being Lost is inspired by John Cage’s 1965 trip to Emma Lake, Saskatchewan, when he went into the woods to hunt for mushrooms and failed to return for 15 hours. With singer Patricia O’Callaghan, harpist Lori Gemmell, and multi-instrumentalist Pete Gemmell, Being Lost tells the story of Cage’s misadventure while investigating what it means to be lost – whether in the woods or a Bach Fugue or a pandemic or a shopping mall or a post-colonial society – and ultimately, what it means to be found.
