Work in progress showing of The Wedding at Pulse Festival, Ipswich. Promotional image



Internationally-celebrated theatre-makers Gecko showed a work-in-progress version of their newest performance The Wedding on 4th June as part of Pulse Festival 2016.

As the world becomes more connected and our own country is enriched with multiple ethnicities, Gecko draws on influences of cultures from around the world, exploring the ritual of the wedding and its place in modern society.

Taking as the starting point the relationship between two people and the contract that they enter into, the work also investigated the marriage between the individual and the state. Are we a happy couple or are we entrapped, and is divorce an option?
