Watch Kin at the National Theatre with a National Theatre at Home subscription.

In 1932, Leah and her family escaped persecution and embarked on a journey from Yemen to Palestine.

Ninety years later, her grandson Amit Lahav (Artistic Director of Gecko) reflects on the life-changing decision his family made to flee and build a better life.

This powerful piece of physical theatre is a provocative story of desperation, compassion and acceptance, inspired by the migration stories of Gecko’s international performers and the extraordinary voyage Leah undertook as a young child.

Amit Lahav and the company’s remarkable devising ensemble bring their own personal experiences to this poetically intoxicating performance, touching on the themes of migration, community, racism and home.

Prepare to be moved to the core by Gecko’s hypnotising beauty, compelling global soundtrack, and unbarred emotion. Look inwards and ask ‘Who am I, and where do I belong?’
