To begin, Reckless Sleepers built a room-sized wooden frame and lined it with plasterboard. For several weeks they started smashing it up, smashing it down, then piecing together the fragments of their destruction back together.
The result is this show, Negative Space. From a blank architectural canvas, something fantastical emerges. It’s a love story. It’s a slapstick comedy. It’s slasher, action, melodrama…and not a single word is spoken. Soon different possible stories are spiralling around, hurtling towards an ending.
Reckless Sleepers is a group of 13 artists from different creative practices who have been creating contemporary theatre projects for over 20 years.
