What is it?
Engineer Theatre Collective present The Gap in the Light, at the New Diorama theatre in London.
The Gap in the Light tells the story of two climbers making a deep descent into somewhere they don’t belong. What they encounter in the dark feels real, but what they bring back with them, into the light, will change everything.
As we grapple with a changing world – divisive politics, unstoppable climate change, never-ending wars – Engineer Theatre Collective explore what it is to be truly afraid. The Gap in the Light traces the nightmares that disturb the sleep of our modern world and asks, how far do we have to fall, and who will catch us when the rope snaps?
The show is the third production by Engineer Theatre Collective, whose reputation is forged on the ability to bring rich imagination and human drama to seemingly heavy, esoteric real world topics, with 2013’s Missing looking into missing persons investigations and 2015’s Run exploring the world of financial sector internships.
The Gap in the Light is a different offering entirely, inspired by classic horror, the show will use a series of inventive production techniques to create a dense, claustrophobic atmosphere which will allow both performers and audience to really get to grips with the nature of fear.
