Gecko is an award-winning and internationally acclaimed physical theatre company, led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav. Not language based, a Gecko show is visual, visceral and ambitious, and the company tours worldwide to mid-scale venues.

In 2016, Gecko created its first international co-production commissioned by British Council’s Shakespeare Lives programme. The Dreamer won the 2016 One Drama ‘Best Stage Design’ Award and exemplifies a new way of collaborating for the company. Gecko was awarded the 2016 Peter Brooke Equity Ensemble Award.
