About the Show/Event
Information for The Gap in the Light at The New Diorama Theatre, Inner London (Play). Darkness. Head torch flickers. She descends the rope. Inch by inch, practiced and efficient. A sound. Stop. She's suspended in black. What's there? Head torch on full beam... Nothing. It's in her head. Silent, she continues her descent. The sound again. Closer. Head torch flickers off. She calls to her climbing partner. No answer. She hangs. Alone. Engulfed in the abyss. Two climbers make a journey, deep into somewhere they don't belong. What they encounter in the dark feels real. What they bring back with them, into the light, will change everything. As we grapple with a changing world - divisive politics, unstoppable temperature rises, never ending wars - Engineer Theatre Collective explore what it is to be truly afraid. Blending striking physical storytelling with visceral design, The Gap in the Light traces the nightmares that disturb the sleep of our modern world. How far do we have to fall, and who will catch us when the rope snaps? Please note: Parts of this performance will take place in complete darkness. Please call our box office for more information.
