Psychological Horror Play ‘The Gap in the Light’ Plunges the New Diorama Theatre into Darkness…

SEEN is all agog: one week today, Engineer Theatre Collective, who have turned heads and earned critical praise for bringing real-life issues to the stage in verbatim, Lecoq-influenced human dramas, will turn their attention to a brand new genre, psychological horror, with their latest production The Gap in the Light, which premieres at New Diorama in May and will run from the 2nd – 27th May 2017.

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 burgeoning 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.

My Furry Lady: the Art of Marion Peck at Dorothy Circus Gallery

SEEN can safely say that there is nowhere quite like Dorothy Circus Gallery in Notting Hill. It is the very antithesis of the white, clinical art gallery that abounds in the capital. From the beautiful yet disquieting pop surrealist art that is the passion of gallery director Alexandra Mazzanti, to the welcoming gallery itself complete …
