Internationally-renowned Yorkshire-based theatre company Mind the Gap is preparing to present a giant piece of outdoor theatre that is set to be a world first by the company known for its provocative and cutting-edge works.
Featuring a giant baby, 3D projection mapping, a cast of 100+ and an original music score, Zara will perform in only two venues – Halifax Piece Hall, Yorkshire in April and Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Southwark, London in May.
“Zara is a huge-impact piece of outdoor theatre that has been four years in the making,” explains Julia Skelton, Executive Director of Mind the Gap.
“We have brought together an international team of directors, choreographers, producers, designers, technicians, puppeteers, musicians and actors. Right now, there are hundreds of people working on the project in the UK and we are really proud to be the company behind the idea.”
