★★★★
“The choreography is wonderfully eclectic and expressive, and performed by all four men with exquisite precision and feeling.”
Financial Times

“Bravery and physical distinctiveness has always distinguished Gecko’s work.”
The Guardian

“It's what we all dread: at a moment of crisis, when we need someone to care - nobody does. Institute brings that dread centre-stage and then pokes at it, kicks it, laughs at it and even ignores it when it flinches or cries out.”
Herald Scotland

★★★★★
“Institute is a piece of physical and visual theatre capable of swallowing you whole”
Exeunt

★★★★★
“Overwhelming… one’s memories of the performance will stay forever.”
The Public Reviews

“Institute offers up sometimes comic, sometimes beautiful imagery… A visceral, physical, intriguing treat.”
British Theatre Guide

★★★★★
“Everything is faultlessly delivered.”

All Edinburgh Theatre

“Gecko have demonstrated their unparalleled ability to portray emotion through movement and have created a potent contribution to the debate about how we should care as well as a penetrating provocation into the nature of care itself.”
In Suffolk Review

“These primitive sounds and movements connect with audience members on the most basic level, allowing the individual to project their own experiences and interpretations on them in deeply personal ways. A totally compelling 75 minutes.”
