Gaps in the Light: Jon, Claire, Mikey and Lucca are friends but do they really know each other? Stuck together, they close the door on their house for the last time; their lives interweave; small spaces become sanctuaries, cells, stages, studios, gyms and ballrooms.

When you go from sharing caramel biscuits to sharing your innermost fantasies and worries something has to change or something within us changes?

When the walls are crushing in and you can hear your neighbours secrets but you can’t join the party or leave, what’s your escape plan? Become someone new, transform your life and walk out into a brand new beginning.

Gaps in the Light is a portrait of 4 people removed from their world, their life and left entirely to their own devices. Made from verbatim interviews. A light and amusing take on life that we all recognise.

a part: a work that celebrates the art of wheelchair dancing. The intricate choreography with a backdrop of graffiti art is driven by the catchy rhythmic structures of original score. With a nod to female pop video icons such as Brittany and Beyoncé; sharp shooting, fast-paced editing invites you to think differently and celebrate new female icons
