A Little Space is a devised piece that explores what happens when people connect and disconnect from each other, whether through choice or through isolation. Drawing on the performers’ own experiences, it uses imagery, sound, language and physicality to portray the needs, desires and fears of the subject.
Mind the Gap has an internationally respected methodology and approach to its work and is considered a beacon for learning disability arts and artists; A Little Space is their first physical theatre production.
Award-winning physical theatre company Gecko has toured globally to audiences of over 200,000; A Little Space is their second associate production following on from the international success of The Dreamer in 2016.
Director Rich Rusk of Gecko said: “It is our great pleasure to be collaborating with Mind the Gap, a company we have enormous respect and admiration for. Together we have created a piece about people; about the positives and negatives of living and being alone; the stories unfold in a space that everyone will recognise so it has given us an opportunity to really make the ordinary extraordinary, using a blend of theatre, choreography and dynamic sound design.”
“A Little Space brings the artists’ experiences to the fore but is fundamentally about us all.”
A Little Space has been commissioned by HOME, Manchester and The Place, London.
