Production details

Gecko has created an intoxicating world where a man’s thoughts and dreams spill out into everyday life. In a futile government department reminiscent of Chaplin’s Modern Times - Akakki falls in love with the beautiful Natalia. His feelings for her are not returned; this drives him to be the best and win the ultimate office prize - The Overcoat - revered by all as a symbol of success. But how far is Akakki willing to go? And at what cost? Get the coat, get the girl, change the world! Gecko has used Gogol’s story as a germ to infect and inspire this piece which has evolved and cultured over two years whilst touring to Brazil, Columbia, South Korea, Israel and China. This award winning company blends bold physicality with beautiful images, evocative music and dramatic story-telling. Gecko takes you on an extraordinary emotional journey in this hugely inventive fantasy.
