Gob Squad returns to Southbank

Gob Squad returns to Southbank Image

By Rhianna Busler

Last seen in Australia as part of the 2012 Melbourne Festival with “Before Your Very Eyes”, Gob Squad is back to showcase the Australian premiere of “War and Peace”.

The theatrical performance takes on one of literature’s most famously unread novels, but this book club leaves the potential for everybody to be a protagonist.

Berlin-based Gob Squad makes live video performances that place its work in the heart of urban life – in houses, shops, underground stations, car parks, hotels or directly on the street.

With a never-ending parade of characters dancing, dining and dueling, War and Peace is set to be an entertaining 105 minutes.

Gob Squad will be performing from Tuesday, October 18 through to Sunday, October 30 at Malthouse’s Merlyn Theatre.

Founded in 1994, Gob Squad is a group of UK and German artists. It makes performances and videos, which search for beauty in the everyday and look for words of wisdom from passing strangers. An artists’ collective with seven core people, members work collaboratively on the concept, direction and performance of their work.  

They explore the point where theatre meets art, media and real life and they constantly search for new ways to combine media and performance – producing stage shows, video installations, radio plays, interactive live films and urban inventions.  

Playful and improvised, the performance searches the performers’ own backdrops of conflict, notions of freedom, privilege and safety.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased from www.festival.melbourne
