The Time of Your Life (live performance video)
The Time of Your Life has an ordinary man at its heart. Desperate to feel different and to find a real human connection in a world consumed by social networks and mass advertising, the man embarks on a journey through rooms representing different milestones in his life.
This was a brand new, live 30 minute performance by Gecko created specially for Live From Television Centre; in which 5 UK based theatre companies and makers were selected to showcase their work. The 5 performances were all filmed at the iconic Television Centre complex in November 2015.
A Gecko and Battersea Arts Centre co-production in collaboration with BBC Arts. Funded by Arts Council England.
