The Wedding - Teaser Trailer

Gecko present The Wedding, created by Amit Lahav

Gecko is an internationally acclaimed physical theatre company combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives to create emotionally charged and spectacular performances inspired by the complexity of human nature.

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

In a blur of wedding dresses and contractual obligations, an extraordinary international ensemble shares their struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation.

We want to believe in our journey but where are we actually heading?
Is it too late to stop, to go back, to fall in love, to start again?

Made in Gecko’s home town of Ipswich, The Wedding has been co-commissioned with the New Wolsey Theatre and DanceEast. Previous collaborations with all three of these Ipswich arts organisations have included The Overcoat, Missing and most recently Institute.
