Directed by Rich Rusk in collaboration with Josie Dale-Jones and Andrés Velásquez
Currently re-developing this one man interactive show for international touring.
Created as part of the British Council’s 2016 Shakespeare Lives programme, commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the show is inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As an additional celebration of this unique collaboration between China and the UK, the production is also influenced by The Peony Pavilion written by Shakespeare’s Chinese contemporary Tang Xianzu.
Winner of the prestigious 2016 One Drama award China for Best Stage Design.

WE CAN TIME TRAVEL
Dom has found a secret message, hidden inside a cassette tape his grandad sent to him 15 years ago. Some people think it’s a key. A key to Time Travel. Join him for an epic adventure as he sets out to change his fate.
Jump into a world of analogue synths, cassette tapes, live looping, epic storytelling and roaring songs to raise a rallying cry for our times, a lucid lens to look at our world, wake up and change the course of time.
“We Can Time Travel, like Coyote, is utterly distinctive and impressive” Theatre Magazine
We Can Time Travel is commissioned by Shoreditch Town Hall and supported by Quarterhouse Folkestone, Bristol Ferment and South Street Reading.
A LITTLE SPACE
A Little Space has paused its tour but will return!
A Gecko and Mind the Gap co-production
What does it mean to you to have a little space?
A little space where we can escape the world and be ourselves. Where we can say whatever we want, do whatever we feel and where no-one will ever bother us. But it can be an unpredictable space too, where voices are funnelled away, fears leak through the floorboards, songs light up the room and you never know who’s listening behind the door.
Following on from the international success of The Dreamer (2016), Gecko’s second Associate Show, a little space combines their unique blend of theatre, choreography and stunning imagery with incredible performers from Mind the Gap, one of Europe’s leading learning disability theatre companies.
