The Enormous Room


In the latest epic production from Stopgap Dance Company, performed at Storyhouse, Chester we follow a father and daughter gradually coming to terms with the loss of Jackie – their wife and mother.

Combining exquisite detail in movement with evocative text and design, The Enormous Room takes the audience somewhere in between this world and the next.

Thoughtful, moving and uplifting, this is a show about saying goodbye and moving on.

The Enormous Room was devised from scratch with cast and collaborators such as Lou Cope the dramaturge, who has worked with artists like Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and more recently on Garry Clarke’s Coal, which just won the UK Theatre Award.

Suitable for all ages

Running time 90 minutes

BSL and captioning is integrated into the show.
