World of Gecko!

Gecko is an award-winning and internationally-acclaimed physical theatre company based in Ipswich, Suffolk and led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav. 

Beyond the stage, they 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. This is why they have designed a YouTube channel to provide people with an insight into our creative process: Q&A’s with company members, behind the scenes exclusives and resources for teachers and students.

Gecko’s education and outreach is a key aspect of their company’s work. They are currently listed as a prescribed practitioner on the AQA specification for AS and A-Level Drama, a suggested company on the International Baccalaureate Theatre course guide and have recently created a resource pack for OCR’s new AS and A-Level Theatre specification.
