The Wedding

Gecko

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

This extraordinary ensemble of nine international performers guide you through a dystopian world in which we are all brides, wedded to society.  This emotionally charged and spectacular performance promises 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 dramatic staging and minimal dialogue to confront big themes. The company return to our stage by popular demand following an acclaimed run as part of London International Mime Festival 2019.
