But what are the terms of this relationship? And can we consider a divorce?
Led by Amit Lahav, The Wedding is inspired by the complexities of human nature: the struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation. In a blur of wedding dresses and contractual obligations, an extraordinary ensemble of international performers guides audiences through a dystopian world in which we are all brides, wedded to society.
Combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives in the company’s trademark style, Gecko’s seventh touring production brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance.
We all want to believe in our journey, but where are we heading? Is it too late to stop, to go back, to fall in love, or to start again?
For each of our current touring shows Gecko have created a Sound World Information Sheet to enable D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audience members to understand the soundscape of each show and how it feeds into the other elements of our performances. You can download/view that document here. Please read the information in advance of attending the show.
Both post show discussions will be BSL interpreted.

Reduced Capacity Performance
There will be a Reduced Capacity performance on Friday 15 October.
We know that some audience members would feel more comfortable with extra space between themselves and other parties and we’re delighted to offer a number of reduced capacity performances this autumn. For reduced capacity performances, audience members will be seated at intervals to ensure that each party is distanced by at least 1 row or seat from each other. Tickets are available in fixed groups, where from 1 to a maximum of 6 seats are grouped together.
