BRADFORD theatre company Mind the Gap will preview its latest production at the Square Chapel in Halifax on Thursday November 21.

The group, whose actors have learning disabilities, will perform their first co-production with innovative theatre company Gecko, entitled A Little Space.

The devised piece will continue to grow and change during its preview tour in November and December, before touring widely across the UK in 2020.

The play explores what happens when people connect and disconnect from each other whether through choice or through isolation.

Drawing on the performers’ own experiences, A Little Space uses imagery, sound, language and physicality to portray the needs, desires and fears of the subject.

Mind the Gap, which has an international reputation for its work with learning disability artists, said A Little Space was its first physical theatre production.

Award-winning physical theatre company Gecko has toured globally to audiences of over 200,000, and was responsible for the internationally-successful The Dreamer in 2016.

Director Rich Rusk of Gecko said: “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.”
