About The Rescue: A Gecko Production

Thalia’s got this. She is holding everyone and everything together. But what happens when the threads start to unravel, her inner world spills out and she finds herself in the midst of a daring rescue?

This brand-new devised production delves into the characteristics of archetypal childhood trauma and explores what happens to these wounds as adults.

Told with Gecko’s trademark visceral and poetic style, The Rescue is a story about heroes, monsters and the fight for survival.

Performed by students on the MA Interdisciplinary Dance Performance course at Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
