  • A collaboration between the Elders Company and Young Company. Created by Andrew Barry and Christopher Owen.
  • 17 February 2017 - 20 February 2017
  • The Studio

There is a space and together we will exist in it.

THE SPACE BETWEEN US is an eclectic group of performers who play, move and speak together. In this show the actors don’t play characters and don’t tell a story, instead they share their thoughts, feelings and experience.

Gordon describes the moment he fell for his wife, Matthew wonders how you know if you’re in love and Maureen dances to her own song. Words collide with movement, ideas and opinions knock against one another and human bodies aged 16-79 journey through the space.

The Space Between Us asks how are we different, how are we the same and what does it mean to be human?

Following the successful tour of FLICKER AND THE FLYING BOOKS the Royal Exchange Theatre’s resident community companies, the Elders Company and the Young Company, will once again collaborate in a pioneering new piece of physical theatre.
