The space between

The Space Between is an initiative that uses theatre - specifically, collaborative devised theatre - to create spaces to discuss and explore complex social topics. At the creative heart of the project is the power of storytelling (and indeed, the telling stories of power). The project focuses on the role of empathy at all stages of the creative process, from ideation to performance, and how theatre-making can provide a time and place to pause and listen to others without judgement. Sometimes we just need some space in order to find and build connections, with ourselves and others.

The Space Between is led by teacher and playwright Neela Doležalová. For more information, please get in touch.
