A new physical theatre performance examining the complexities of human nature and its inherent contradictions is coming to the Hall for Cornwall in October.

Award-winning physical theatre company Gecko’s new show The Wedding, the group's most ambitious production to date, focuses on personal and political marriage.

The Wedding is inspired by the complexities of human nature: the struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation. The extraordinary ensemble of nine international performers guides audiences through a blur of wedding dresses and contractual obligations, a dystopian world in which we are all brides, wedded to society.

Combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives in Gecko’s trademark style, The Wedding brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance.

Amit Lahav, Gecko’s artistic director, has devised a rigorous and productive process of developing a show over a period of two years, including an initial phase of development followed by a creation tour in which the show changes and progresses dramatically. The Wedding’s first work in progress was shared in June 2016 at Pulse Festival in Ipswich and the show’s creation tour took place in spring 2017.

The Wedding will be at the Hall For Cornwall on Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7, at 7.30pm, with a post-show Q&A on the Friday.
