We have another lovely blog post for you! We would like to thank Rosie and Tin for their support, not only are they patrons of Theatr Brycheiniog but they are also regularly involved in many creative projects and classes. We asked them if they would answer some question for us and they were kind enough to give us such interesting and heartwarming responses.

A Little Space, March 12, 7.30pm

As a Theatre we are truly inspired and thrilled to have this amazing production coming to our stage that we just couldn’t stop ourselves from posting this blog!

Do you love the Theatre? The excitement of curtains up? The lights, music and atmosphere? Perhaps you haven’t been to the theatre in a while or even never?  A Little Space is the perfect to show provoke emotions and wonder.

David Wilson, Director at Theatr Brycheiniog says about the show “We are delighted to have this latest show as a co-production from Mind The Gap & Gecko Theatre and it is a real privilege to host their only performance in Wales. It’s fitting that this visceral, viscous and ambitious work is the culmination to our Unlimited sponsored conference when accessibility is at the forefront of our provision to audiences.”

 

Check out these images! Warning they will make you feel warm and fuzzy with pure desire to book tickets!

 

Just amazing!

A little about the show

Set in an apartment block, this devised show 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 characters.

Mind the Gap has an internationally respected methodology and approach to its work and is considered a beacon for learning disability arts and artists; A Little Space is their first physical theatre production. Gecko’s style is both physically demanding and emotionally honest, using breath as an anchor to explore movement and emotion. The company strives to make their work open to interpretation and put their audience at the heart of the narrative – an ethos that has been reflected in the devising of A Little Space as we ask you, the audience, how it feels to be alone.

 A few Q&A's

 

 

Alison C

Q-How did you become involved with a little space?

A-I was part of the trial ground in 2017 and the experimental session in 2018. I was chosen to be part of the cast in 2018 because of the work I’d put in during those sessions.

Q-How would you describe A Little Space to a friend?

A-A Little Space is a show with different stories which intertwine together so as to create one story. See the show, because various scenes can be interpreted in different ways.

Q-How long have you worked at Mind The Gap/Gecko?

A-I’ve worked with MTG/Gecko for 3 years, 13 at MTG as an individual company.   

 

Jo

Q-What have been the biggest challenges you’re faced in performing in/creating the show?   

A-When we change some of the scenes in between the shows.

 

Lorraine

Q-What have you learned?

A- I haven’t done a show like this before! Using a lot of focus on the body, like knees.

Q-How would you describe A Little Space to a friend?

A-Using my body to tell a story.

 

Charlie

Q-What do you feel is special about the way Gecko and MTG have worked together?

A-Every moment counts, they put in a lot of care with details of the storytelling to make it polished. Then throw in music and lights to make it effective to the emotions.
