PLEASE BE AWARE: Due to the theft of Stopgap’s van containing the entirety of their set, the scheduled performance on Friday 23 February has been postponed until Friday 20 April 7.30pm. – Please contact our Box Office on 01473 295230 if you have any questions.
Stopgap Dance Company present The Enormous Room, where the past is still present and memories collide with reality. Combining exquisite detail in movement with evocative text and design, the production takes the audience somewhere between this world and the next.
Dave’s wife Jackie is gone, but he still sees her everywhere. She is lying in his bed, sitting at the kitchen table and laughing with their daughter Sam. Dave is not going anywhere and has withdrawn into the living room. He has built the walls up high and is refusing to let the future in.
The performance will both be audio described and have captions. Any visually impaired audience members will have the chance to join a ‘touch tour’ of the venue at 6pm prior to the show. Please contact the box office for more information.
DanceEast’s performance group for adults with additional needs, Spin Off, will present a commissioned film made with Stopgap company dancers in the Wellbeing Studio at 6.30pm (free – but booked separately, please contact Box office on 01473 295230 to book your place)
