A visual feast
Spellbinding music, mesmerising dance moves and narratives in languages from all over the world, make it a truly entertaining and thought-provoking experience
Offers its own remarkable, mesmerising take on the world we live in, full of horror and hope, fortitude and fear, love and lamentation and is an amazing achievement
Bravery and physical distinctiveness has always distinguished Gecko’s work
The Guardian, Lyn Gardner
This company have the extraordinary capability to pierce the heart of a subject and essentially remind us what it is to be human.
