Show Details

LONDON PREMIERE

 

Seducing audiences with intricate choreography, provocative narratives and vivid symbolism, The Wedding brings the union between state and individual into question amid a flurry of white dresses.


From a chute they emerge giddy as newborns, clutching teddy bears expectantly. But things soon turn business-like, with doubt, regret and a creeping sense of dislocation entering the physically emotive language of the faultless nine-strong ensemble, their thrillingly tribal and rhythmic finale promising revolution and hope.

 

Physical theatre company Gecko set stages alight with ‘hugely visual, exuberantly choreographed and often poetically lush shows’ (Guardian). Led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav, they meld heightened movement with spectacular staging and minimal dialogue to confront big themes, specifically tackling community and isolation within The Wedding.

 

‘‘Gecko combine a deliciously warped imagination with all-out physical daring" The Times
