Founded in 2001; Gecko is an award winning, internationally acclaimed physical theatre company, led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav.

With an expanding ensemble of international performers and makers, Gecko creates work through collaboration, experimentation and play. The company tours nationally and internationally, developing strong partnerships around the world.

Gemma Bodinetz, our Artistic Director, said: “Theatre, dance, magic, ambition… somewhere in the cocktail of these elements sits the splendour of a Gecko show. Relatively new to Liverpool, here as in other cities around the world this company are growing an audience for jaw-dropping theatre.”

Beyond the stage, Gecko aspire 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.
