Join us for a Q&A with Gecko

Helen Baggett (Associate Director, Gecko) discusses the work of Gecko with ND Executive Committee member Wendy Frost (Drama Pathway Lead, Wolverhampton University) exploring the relationship between breath, communication, authenticity, and making extraordinary performance pieces. Gecko produce ground breaking and award winning international physical theatre work which takes the individual audience member on a personal journey that is unique, breathtaking, and emotive. Their total theatre approach to creating and making is favored in many educational settings, and now sits firmly within the curriculum.
