Thursday, February 19, 2015
12–2 pm

Always on the hunt for beauty in the midst of the mundane, the playful and ultra-intelligent Berlin and Nottingham-based Gob Squad creates provocative and interactive performances where theatre meets art, media and real life. This illustrated lecture given by members Bastian Trost and Simon Will provided us with an intimate peek into the world of Gob Squad. Gob Squad members shared an introduction to the group including how they got their start and an overview of their provocative and entertaining work over the past 20 years. Last seen at The Public Theater, Gob Squad's Kitchen (You’ve Never Had It So Good) won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. NYU Skirball presented Gob Squad's latest work Western Society which ran from February 18-21, 2015.
