  • Storyhouse Theatre

We exist both where we’ve come from and where we’re going.

The award-winning and internationally acclaimed physical theatre company Gecko are bringing their visually stunning story of migration, racism, empathy and the search for home, Kin, to the Storyhouse stage.

As a young child in 1932, Leah embarked on an epic journey from Yemen to Palestine. Ninety years later her grandson imagines the voyage her family made to escape persecution and build a better life.

Artistic Director Amit Lahav together with Gecko’s extraordinary ensemble of international devising performers presents a provocative story of desperation and compassion. At a time when the re-birth of community and acceptance seem vital to our survival, they bring their own experiences of migration, empathy and home to this poetically intoxicating performance.

Prepare to be moved to the core by Gecko’s hypnotising beauty, compelling global soundtrack, and unbarred emotion. Look inwards and ask ‘Who am I, and where do I belong?’


‘For sheer visual lushness you can’t beat Gecko, a company which under the direction of Amit Lahav has developed a distinct theatrical style which is unique in British theatre’ – Lyn Gardner (Stage Door, June 2022).
