The Gap In The Light

A noise in the night, pulling you out of sleep. Your eyes snap open - you're suddenly hot.

Was the sound in a dream or in the house? The front gate? The cat next door? The pipes? The pipes. Relieved, you pull back the covers. Tread softly to the bathroom, the carpet comfortable and familiar. Meet your tired eyes in the mirror and enjoy that there's still four hours before your alarm goes off and it's morning. Turn the tap. Fill the glass. Have a drink. Look up.

In the mirror, behind you there's a shape in the dark.

Engineer explore what it is to be afraid. Fear inhabits the corners of our lives, perhaps moreso now than ever. How do we face, comprehend and endure it? How far can we, or should we, pull the things that scare us into the light?

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies fund and is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

ABOUT ENGINEER THEATRE COLLECTIVE 

Engineer are a group of devisers dedicated to creating visually striking, ensemble-led theatre. They have a shared language which relies upon close collaboration between designers and specialists relevant to the field they are exploring, to create new works and interpret existing texts. Broadly influenced by a Lecoq-based training, they employ a rigorous attitude to rehearsal and development and seek to explore new and challenging story telling forms, using physicality, space and sound to fire an audience’s engagement.

Engineer’s previous show RUN has been nominated for BEST DIRECTOR and BEST ENSEMBLE at the OffWestEnd Awards 2016
