Movement Direction

Alongside the making of new Gecko shows, touring and our extensive education programme, we also work on a range of projects with different artists and organisations.  Gecko has a unique style of movement, which can be paired with original storytelling and concepts, and we are interested in building new, exciting, creative relationships across the arts industry and beyond.

For more information or if you’d like to talk to us about a project, please email General Manager Joff Whitten.

Dangerous Desires

Egon Schiele: Dangerous Desires
Aired on BBC Two, Saturday 10th November
Available on BBC iPlayer until 9th December.

Artistic Director Amit Lahav worked on movement direction and casting for BBC2’s documentary about Austrian painter Egon Schiele, Egon Schiele: Dangerous Desires, directed by Teresa Griffiths. Shown on BBC2 in the week coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Schiele’s death, the documentary told the story of Schiele’s short and dramatic life in his own words, using original letters and writings.

The documentary used Lahav’s choreography to convey the expressiveness of Schiele’s work, focusing on its physicality and humanity.

★★★★★ Financial Times
“Interspersed dramatised episodes are not unusual in this kind of documentary but here they have an extra, thrilling dimension… Quasi-balletic interludes also fit the artist’s vision of forceful movement capturing extreme emotional states.”

Free Yourself

Collaborating with directors Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall (@smithandlyall), Amit Lahav was invited to work with multi-award winning, ground-breaking duo The Chemical Brothers on imagery for new songs on their 2018 world tour.

Amit played with visuals imagined by Smith and Lyall to create three distinct worlds and also supported the casting of the project.
