About Gecko

Gecko was formed in 2001 and is an award winning and internationally-acclaimed physical theatre company, led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav.

With an expanding ensemble of international performers and makers, Gecko works across diverse age groups, nationalities and forms. The company tours nationally and internationally and continues to develop strong partnerships around the world.

Beyond the stage, Gecko aspires to open the doors on their process via every possible avenue, be it digital, in schools or through one-to-one relationships with their audience.

Gecko's work is visual, visceral and ambitious theatre created to inspire, move and entertain. Gecko strives to make their work open to interpretation and puts their audience at the heart of the narrative.
