Stopgap Dance Company | The Enormous Room

Stopgap Dance Company | The Enormous Room


In the latest production by pioneering British dance company Stopgap, follow father and daughter as they gradually come to terms with the sudden death of their wife and mother, Jackie.

In _The Enormous Room_, the past is still very present and memories collide with reality. Jackie is gone, but Dave still sees her everywhere. She is lying in his bed, sitting at the kitchen table and laughing with their daughter Sam.

Combining exquisite detail in movement with evocative text and set design, _The Enormous Room_ transports us somewhere between this world and the next. Thoughtful, moving and uplifting, this is a work about saying goodbye and moving on.

Stopgap employ disabled and non-disabled artists, exploring innovative ways to collaborate. Difference is both the company’s means and method, shifting perceptions and inspiring everyone to achieve their potential.
