CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.
When the time comes, will anyone really care? Welcome to Gecko's Institute, where forgotten stories and re-cycled memories pour out of filing cabinets and endless corridors. Four gripping journeys collide in an extraordinary world of breathtaking movement and exquisite storytelling. Martin longs for one more breath with Margaret. Daniel climbs higher and higher over a towering world but will he fulfil his ambition? Stuck in this beguiling maze of officialdom they lurch from one outrageous task to another. But who is giving the orders? We have plunged into what it means to care. We have spoken to our elders, colleagues and friends, witnessed those on the edges of society, and looked at the world around us. For two years we have honed and crafted INSTITUTE - an intimate dissection of the way we nurture and care for ourselves and each other. Recommended age 14+. Running time: 1hr 15mins. Created by Amit LahavPerformers Chris Evans, Amit Lahav, Ryen Perkins-Gangnes, Francois Testory.
