Innovative British Physical Theater Company Gecko Touring in Batumi

Multi-award winning and internationally acclaimed physical theater company Gecko presents ‘Institute,’ an intimate, funny and moving exploration of what it means to care.

Set in a warped world of emotional compartmentalization and treatment - where memories are filed, relationships scrutinized and the patient becomes the carer, four people undergo a series of extraordinary physical ‘treatments’ as they struggle to prepare themselves for the outside world. But a Gecko world is never as it first appears…

Expect ingenious set design featuring giant filing cabinets from which fully formed memories, whole relationships and secrets are pulled out and filed away; visceral movement and intricate group choreography from the all-male cast; and moments of stunning tenderness and beauty that shine.

The performances are held as a result of the long term partnership between the British Council and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Adjara Autonomous Republic, as part of the British Council Performing Arts Support Program.

British Theater Guide: "Institute offers us sometimes comic, sometimes beautiful imagery… A visceral, physical, intriguing treat."
