THE Enormous Room from Stopgap Dance Company is coming to the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre in Taunton.

Featuring David Toole, whose achievements and skills as a disabled performer have been widely influential, plus newcomer Hannah Sampson as a father and daughter living through their own, very different experiences of grief.

Dave’s wife Jackie has died, but he still sees her everywhere. She is lying in his bed, sitting at the kitchen table and laughing with their daughter Sam.

Dave has withdrawn into the living room unable to let his memories go, but going is all that Sam can think about….

David Toole’s career includes a prominent solo in the 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony and the landmark 2004 film from DV8, The Cost Of Living. David has worked with Stopgap Dance Company for over a decade.

Sam is played by Hannah Sampson, a young dancer with Down’s syndrome who has received over 10 years of professional training with Stopgap Dance Company.

The interactions between David Toole and Sampson demonstrate their onstage chemistry, which has been evident since initial rehearsals and workshops of this work.

Tickets cost £12 / £10 Concs / £7 Students.
