Warped world in new Gecko production

Gecko will be presenting their latest production Gecko at Derby Theatre from April 2-5.

Following their highly acclaimed performance of Missing last year, Derby Theatre is delighted to announce that the multi award-winning physical dance theatre company Gecko, prior to a UK tour later this year, will return to the theatre with the premiere of their new piece, Institute.

When the time comes, will anyone really care? Set in a warped world of emotional compartmentalisation and treatment – where memories are filed, relationships scrutinised and 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. But a Gecko world is never as it first appears...

Gecko has a reputation for generating unique new worlds, exquisite stage-craft and breath-taking choreography. As well as being visually captivating. For Institute, audiences can once again expect ingenious design, featuring giant filing cabinets from which full formed memories, whole relationships and secrets are pulled out and filed away; visceral movement and intricate group choreography from the all-male cast.

Tickets are £10.50-£23.50. For more information and to book tickets call 01332 593939.
