“Tender, exciting and dangerous. Outstandingly brilliant.” Total Theatre Magazine
Using text, video archive and soundtrack, this playful performance-lecture on authenticity, truth, fiction and collective identity unfolds as a moving meditation on the nature of the self. Audience members participate in the action, navigating the paradoxical terrain between surrender and self-determination, loss of control and the desire to have control. A collective of UK and German artists, Gob Squad searches for beauty in the everyday, seeking words of wisdom from passing strangers. Maneuvering the intersection where theater meets art, media and real life, they place their work at the heart of urban life.
