Gecko and Mind the Gap present a little space, Manchester


Price: £10 - £20 (Conc. from £5)


A man in a patterned jumper stares a screen. His face is lit up. There is an old fashioned orange lamp behind him.

What does it mean to you to have a little space?

A 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.

Following on from the international success of Gecko’s first associate show The Dreamer (2016) and Mind the Gap’s giant outdoor spectacle ZARA (2019), these two performance powerhouses join forces for a captivating production.

Set in an apartment block, a little space follows the lives of five people and explores what happens when they connect and disconnect from each other, whether through choice or through isolation.

Drawing on the performers’ own experiences, a little space is a powerful piece of physical theatre, which uses movement, imagery, sound and lighting to portray the needs, desires and fears of the subject.
