The Space in Between | 3-day Rental

Did you miss seeing The Space in Between in person? You can now rent it at any time for a 3-day period!

A riveting full-length contemporary ballet based on C.S. Lewis' novel The Great Divorce. In a grey town where the rain falls continuously, stands a man at a bus stop, on the brink of heaven and hell. This dreamlike place is the setting for Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager’s acclaimed work The Space in Between, presented here in a special made-for-film format, filmed March, 2020 in Ballet 5:8 Studios.

Drawing inspiration from The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis, The Space in Between explores the nature of eternity and the joy found on its shores. In Lewis’ work, Hell is not a place where a vengeful God tortures his victims, but a place “where the gates are locked from the inside.” Lewis writes, “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’”
