A Little Space
A Mind the Gap & Gecko co-production
What does it mean to you to have a little space?
A space where we can escape the world and be ourselves; where no-one will ever bother us. But it can be an unpredictable space too, where voices vanish, fears leak through the floorboards and you never know who’s listening behind the door. A place where whispers come to life and one kind gesture could change everything.
A unique blend of theatre, choreography and stunning imagery.
Following the international success of Gecko’s first Associate Show The Dreamer (2016) and Mind the Gap’s giant outdoor spectacle ZARA (2019), these two performance powerhouses join forces for a captivating production.
Mind the Gap’s Charli Ward and Karen Bartholomew team up with Gecko Devising Performer Dan Watson, Associate Directors Rich Rusk and Helen Baggett, Designer Rhys Jarman, Lighting Designer Chris Swain and Composer Dave Price, to create this intricately crafted physical theatre show.
