From Britain comes a poetic and exciting stage performance that blurs the boundary between the disabled and the nondisabled.
With the motto “Difference is our means and our method,” the Stopgap Dance Company from England has produced works with high artistic quality that maximize the potential of dancers with and without disabilities. “The Enormous Room” invites the audience to a parallel world intricately intertwined with impressive stage art, fascinating physical movements, and dramatic scenes.
“The Enormous Room” is a special place where never-fading memories reside and where memory and reality cross each other.
Dave is saddened by the sudden loss of his wife, Jakie. Their daughter, Sam, also could not forget the days she spent with her late mother. One day their memories create an illusion, and the Jakies in Dave’s and Sam’s memories simultaneously appear in front of them. As Chock, the guide between the parallel worlds, arrives, the story takes an unexpected turn…
