The Wedding

The Wedding

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

Led by Amit Lahav, Gecko’s latest creation is inspired by the complexities of human nature: the struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation. In a blur of wedding dresses and contractual obligations, our extraordinary ensemble of international performers will guide audiences through a dystopian world in which we are all brides, wedded to society.

Combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives in Gecko’s trademark style, our seventh touring production brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance. 

We all 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?

We performed our first work in progress sharing of The Wedding in June 2016 at Pulse Festival in Ipswich. Further development has then continued throughout Autumn 2016. Join us on the next stage of the show’s journey as we embark upon it’s Creation Tour in Spring 2017.
