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.

Special pre-show panel event: Architecture and Performance – 5pm, Wed 2 March. Free but booking is required. For more information please call 0161 274 0600. Alternatively book your place via the related events section below.
