The acclaimed multimedia collective of artists from the U.K. and Germany leads a masterclass that serves as an introduction to their working process, and methods of using the individual performer to filter, digest and interact with the wider culture, history and society around us. Company members lead this performance workshop right in the set of Gob Squad’s Kitchen, exploring their unique blend of theater and real life. This workshop is open to students, artists, performance makers and film makers, 16-years or older.

Presented in conjunction with Gob Squad’s Kitchen (You’ve Never Had It So Good) by Gob Squad at REDCAT, September 20–23, 2012.

ABOUT GOB SQUAD

Gob Squad is a group of UK and German artists who make performances and videos that search for beauty in the everyday, and look for words of wisdom from a passing stranger. The seven core members work collaboratively on each work’s concept, direction and performance of our work. The ensemble explores the point where theatre meets art, media and real life. In addition to theatres and galleries, Gob Squad places performances at the heart of urban life—in houses, shops, underground stations, car parks, hotels or directly on the street. Everyday life and magic, banality and utopia, reality and entertainment are all set on a collision course and the audience are often asked to step beyond their traditional role as passive spectators and bear witness to the results.
