We are all married, bound by a contract.

But what are the terms of this relationship? And can we consider a divorce?

Led by Amit Lahav, 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, our 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 in the company’s trademark style, Gecko’s seventh touring production brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance.

We all want to believe in our journey, but where are we heading? Is it too late to stop, to go back, to fall in love, or to start again?

Subject to funding.

Presented by Gecko

There’s a terrific ensemble at work in a show that bursts with the joy of union.
