The Wedding

We are all married, bound by a contract. But what are the terms of this relationship and can we talk about divorce?

In a blur of wedding dresses and contractual obligations, Gecko (Institute) return to HOME with an extraordinary ensemble who guide us through the struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation.

We want to believe in our journey but where are we heading?
Is it too late to stop, to go back, to fall in love, to start again?

Gecko is an internationally acclaimed physical theatre company combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives to create emotionally charged and spectacular performances inspired by the complexity of human nature.

“They deliver something that is mesmerising to watch… Compelling, powerful and evocative…. Artistic Director Amit Lahav surely has more accolades coming his way.” – The Reviews Hub

“Bravery and physical distinctiveness has always distinguished Gecko’s work.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
