Critically acclaimed physical dance theatre company Gecko return with an intimate, funny and revealing exploration of care.
Institute is driven by Gecko’s 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?
Gecko have a reputation for generating unique worlds, exquisite stage craft and breathtaking choreography. As well as being visually captivating, Institute is extremely intimate. An incisive dissection of the way we nurture and care for ourselves and each other.
