Institute

In collaboration with the BBC, the Gecko Theatre, and The Space, we filmed the first feature by the Gecko. A unique, funny, and moving exploriation of what it means to care. Originally broadcast on BBC4.

Based on the internationally acclaimed stage production and drawing on the Gecko Theatre’s reputation for generating unique worlds, intoxicatingly beautiful scenes and breath-taking choreography, we produced a visually captivating and poetic film on the dissection of the way we nurture and care for ourselves and each other.

In a time when we are potentially more fractured and disconnected than ever before, Institute asks how we care more for each other in the fast-paced, target-driven machinery of modern life? Who will be there to catch us when we fall?

Set in a shadowy establishment where residents attempt to create order from the chaos of life, carers become patients, memories fracture and relationships collide.
