Gecko's Institute // Director’s note

When the time comes, will anyone really care?

This feels to me like the right time to be asking this question. We are entering a time in which we are potentially more fractured and disconnected from one another than ever before. Are we losing our ability to read each other and therefore protect and care for one another? Alongside this, the notion of care has become a political currency, spoken about in the media every day. Institute is driven by Gecko’s desire to explore complexities in human nature; our impulse to care and our complete reliance on one another. We’ve created a very intimate, funny and revealing experience in Gecko's physical, honest and generous style. A world where everyone relies on someone to catch them!”

Amit Lahav,
Director of Institute and Artistic Director of Gecko
