Gecko THE WEDDING
Derby Theatre Thursday 8 until Saturday 10 February
Derby Theatre is absolutely thrilled to welcome back award-winning and internationally-acclaimed physical theatre company, Gecko, led by Amit Lahav, with their latest, highly acclaimed touring production of The Wedding, on at the Theatre for three dates only from Thursday 8 until Saturday 10 February.
Gecko have wowed audiences at Derby Theatre before with two outstanding previous productions, Institute and Missing – and their latest touring production promises audiences the wow factor once again with 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, their extraordinary ensemble of international performers guides audiences through a dystopian world in which we are all brides, wedded to society.
Combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives in the company’s trademark style, Gecko’s 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?
