a little space at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 12–15 February 2020, from £5.00 - Book now

Building on the international success of Gecko’s first Associate show, The Dreamer and Mind the Gap’s giant outdoor performance event, ZARA, these two mighty theatre-companies join forces to create a brand new devised piece. Commissioned by HOME and The Place, London, a little space examines what occurs when people connect and disconnect from each other, whether through isolation or choice.

Two performance powerhouses, we absolutely cannot wait to watch their ideas and styles collide.

Promising to be an intricately crafted performance, a little space seeks to fuse Gecko’s exceptional blend of choreography, theatre and stunning visuals with extraordinary performances from Mind the Gap. The show has been created by Rich Rusk and Dan Watson, Gecko and Karen Bartholomew and Charli Ward, Mind the Gap.

Drawing on many of the performers’ own experiences, the show will combine a stunning soundscape and lighting design with dynamic physicality and imagery.

Bradford-based Mind the Gap are considered a beacon for learning disability arts, their recent productions – the critically acclaimed ZARA and Mia – both put learning disability at the centre of the narrative; a little space will be the companies first physical theatre show.

The show will combine a stunning soundscape and lighting design with dynamic physicality and imagery.

The award-winning Gecko have toured internationally, performing to audiences of over 200,000. Following on from the huge success of The Dreamer, a little space is their second Associate Production.

Two performance powerhouses, we absolutely cannot wait to watch their ideas and styles collide. We’re not completely sure what to expect, but we’d put our money on it being a truly captivating performance.
