We are thrilled to stream ‘A Little Space’ created by Gecko and Mind the Gap this February. Gecko and Mind the Gap created this intricately crafted physical theatre show, through a truly collaborative process driven by the experiences of the five learning disabled performers.
The UK tour was cut short due to the pandemic but, thanks to funding from The Space, the show has been reworked into a film version that premiered in summer 2021.
What does it mean to you to have a little space?
A little space where we can escape the world and be ourselves. Where we can say whatever we want, do whatever we feel and where no one will ever bother us.
But it can be an unpredictable space too, where voices are funnelled away, fears leak through the floorboards, songs light up the room and you never know who's listening behind the door.
A place where whispers come to life and one kind gesture could change everything.
Visually stunning stuff, dotted with thrilling moments of surprise and ingenuity.
Commissioned by The Space.
