INSTITUTE

Created by Amit Lahav

Critically acclaimed physical dance-theatre company Gecko return with an intimate, funny and revealing exploration of what it means to care.

Set in a warped world of emotional compartmentalisation and rehabilitation, where memories are filed and relationships scrutinised, the patient becomes carer and vice versa. Four people undergo a series of extraordinary physical ‘treatments’ as they struggle to prepare themselves for the outside world…

Institute is driven by Geckoʼs desire to explore complexities in human nature; our impulse to care and our complete reliance on one another. We are entering a time in which we are potentially more fractured and disconnected than ever before – when the time comes, will anyone really care?

But a Gecko world is never as it first appears…
