CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
In 2014 Reckless Sleepers started putting the pieces of Negative Space together. We built a wooden frame and lined it with plasterboard and for several weeks started smashing up, smashing down, and then piecing the fragments of our destruction into creating our new theatre project making what we now call Negative Space. A sister project to Schr?dinger we opened up this black box world turning it upside down and the wrong way round, broke all of the rules that we had spent years establishing and made something new. The stage is a blank canvas, occupied only by one chair, one man and one woman desperately setting the stage. But it grows. And it Grows. Until it becomes something so fantastical that you barely believe it's happening. It's a love story. It's a slapstick comedy. It's a slasher, an action, a melodrama and not a single word is spoken throughout. Soon all these different stories are spiralling around each other before they start smashing towards the project's conclusion and it is Intense.
