Missing is a deliciously warped journey into the depths of the human psyche. Follow Lily, a woman whose soul appears to be decaying. She is very successful in life and love but something is missing…

Amit Lahav’s production invites the audience to experience a series of extraordinary images, jaw-dropping choreography and a tantalizing multilingual vocal landscape. The shadows of Lily’s past invite her, along with each audience member, to consider how far they have strayed from who they are and where they come from.

Missing is a truly universal theatrical experience. Since 2012 it has toured to Russia, China, Georgia, Malta, Colombia, Mexico and across the UK. It is due to perform in Hong Kong and Macau later in 2015.

In March 2015, during a three week run at Battersea Arts Centre, Missing was completely destroyed in a fire which devastated the Grand Hall. With help from generous support from our audiences and industry up and down the country, we managed to completely rebuild the production in just eight days so we could go ahead with our tour of Mexico.


“Together they generate a tingling energy.” Donald Hutera

“A kind of restless delirium, dense with poetic effect.” Sanjoy Roy

Bristol, Edinburgh, Newcastle
“With this flawless production, Gecko have created a wonderful, beautiful roller coaster ride into the murky world of memory.” Moira Hunt

“You could see this show several times and gain something new from it each time. . . . Gecko’s Missing is a fascinating, vivid piece of physical storytelling that will have a personal meaning for everyone who sees it.” Catherine Sutherland

“The choreography is bewitching.” Callum Madge

“The depth of human experience covered in the play was extensive: dysfunction, loneliness, love, rage, loss, pain, hope, fear, redemption – all executed with intensity and elegance. Enigmatic, unique, frightening and breathtaking, missing Missing should be avoided at all costs.” Isla VT
