The Enormous Room

Mon 06 March 2017

Spring 2017 | LEAP Festival 2017

STOPGAP DANCE COMPANY presents The Enormous Room

In THE ENORMOUS ROOM, 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 in between this world and the next. This work of physical theatre depicts the relationship between Dave and his daughter Sam, who are both trying to deal with Jackie's sudden death. THE ENORMOUS ROOM is a production that champions the creative potential of diversity. Led by the female choreographer Lucy Bennett, who is a pioneer in inclusive choreography, the creative team involved people with differences in age, ethnicity, social and cultural backgrounds as well as disability.
