We are all married, bound by a contract. But what are the terms of this relationship and can we talk about divorce?
Following their sell-out tour of Institute, Gecko’s latest creation 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, their 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, The Wedding brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance.
“There’s a terrific ensemble at work in a show that bursts with the joy of union.”
