Gecko is one of the UK’s leading physical theatre companies creating exciting and innovative new performance that thrills audiences all around the world. Founded in 2001 by Artistic Director Amit Lahav, Gecko’s work is visual, visceral and ambitious and they create work through collaboration, experimentation and play.

This unique training opportunity allows professional performers to delve into the world of Gecko and to learn about the company’s approach to physical theatre and gain an insight in to their creative process when devising for performance.

Through a series of highly physical, dynamic workshops, you will focus on methods for creating movement for performance and use breath to explore emotions, expanding your creative toolkits. Participants will be nurtured and challenged in their artistic decision-making and performance skills, coming together to create a short ensemble piece at the end of the intensive.

You’ll gain an insight into Gecko’s creation process as well as tools and advice for devising and performing that you can use in your own practice.

The intensive is for performers who have a professional dance and/or theatre practice.
