about the artist

Stopgap Dance Company creates exceptional dance productions for national and international touring. We employ disabled and non-disabled artists who find innovative ways to collaborate. Stopgap value a pioneering spirit and are committed to making discoveries about integrating disabled and non-disabled people through dance. Stopgap’s productions are devised by the company dancers and collaborators working as an ensemble under the artistic direction of Lucy Bennett. Our productions seek to offer a window into a parallel world where human interdependence, strength and vulnerability play out with poetic realism.

Difference is our means and our method.


about the show

In an epic new production from Stopgap Dance Company, we follow a father and daughter gradually coming to terms with the loss of their wife and mother. Combining exquisite detail in movement with evocative text and design, The Enormous Room transports its audience somewhere between this world and the next. A thoughtful, moving and uplifting meditation on saying goodbye and moving on.
