The Engineer Theatre Collective will premiere their new production at the New Diorama Theatre from the 2nd to the 27th May.
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?
This new production sees Engineer Theatre Collective tackle a new genre of psychological horror by using a variety of production techniques to create a dense, claustrophobic atmosphere.
The Gap in the Light is the third production created by the company and explores what it is really like to be afraid.
Audiences should note that parts of the performance will take place completely in the dark.
Engineer Theatre Collective are a theatre company who bring imagination to real world topics as seen from previous productions 2013’s Missing and 2015’s Run.
The Gap in the Light will play at the New Diorama Theatre from the 2nd to the 27th May. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.newdiorama.com/whats-on/the-gap-in-the-light
