Recommended Age Guideline 6+

Somewhere, on an island, Gael, a gecko-like creature lives alone, in harmony with the surroundings. Everything matches, everything is perfect.

Unfortunately, Gael is not alone for long. A stranger arrives, laden with earthly belongings and starts setting up home, disturbing this island sanctuary. However, the forecast is for rising water levels and soon there won’t be space for either of them…

A visually striking, witty and thought-provoking dance work for younger audiences.


“…a wonderful show, and admirably abstract for a work intended for younger audiences.”
