We are all married, bound by a contract. But what are the terms of this relationship and can we talk about divorce?
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, 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 into Gecko’s trademark style, The Wedding brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance.
We want to believe in our journey but where are we heading? Is it too late to stop, to go back, to fall in love, to start again?
Duration: 1 hour 20mins with no interval
We are delighted to welcome internationally acclaimed Gecko to OP for the first time. Their hugely visual, exuberantly choreographed and poetically lush new show, The Wedding seamlessly fuses theatre, dance and clowning to create a heart pounding drama not to be missed.
