Deepening human connection through physical, visual, visceral and ambitious performance and participation.

Gecko is an award-winning and internationally acclaimed physical theatre company, led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav. Founded in 2001, the company has created 7 critically acclaimed shows, 2 Associate Shows and 2 films. Gecko is currently creating our eighth stage production Kin, commissioned by the National Theatre, exploring themes of racism, family, migration, and home.

We create performance that explores contemporary themes relevant to the society in which we live, performance that is inspiring and provocative. We blend choreography, sound, lighting and set design to create our worlds and use breath, emotion, multiple languages and metaphor to tell our stories. Our audience engage with our work in various ways (visually, sonically and emotionally) giving it a broad appeal across diverse age groups, nationalities and backgrounds. This approach encourages our audience to deepen their connection with the company and each other, and to create and share their own interpretation of our work.

We take the same approach with our Creative Engagement programme. Working with our highly experienced facilitators, we create a safe and supported environment that allows creative practitioners, local community groups and students to be bold and experimental, inviting them to push beyond the boundaries of their previous experience, develop new skills and a new understanding of the world around them.
