The Wedding
Gecko's The Wedding // Director’s note

Inspiration for creating work is all around us.

It’s in our personal lives, in the news, politics, and in the relationships that we have with our friends, families and colleagues. By delving further into these relationships, I was struck by a sense that we are all married, bound by the many contracts of modern life. The Wedding is inspired by these complexities of human nature: the struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation. For this show we have created a dystopian world in which every one of us is a bride, wedded to society. But what are the terms of this relationship? And can we consider a divorce?

Amit Lahav, Director of The Wedding and Artistic Director of Gecko

3. Cards with lots of writing and stories and things relating to you are lovely to receive and mean a lot. Cards with just a few words and a generic greeting are weird.
