Gob Squad is a group of UK and German artists. They make performances and videos which search for beauty in the everyday, and look for words of wisdom from a passing stranger. They try and explore the point where theatre meets art, media and real life. As well as theatres and galleries, they place their work 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.
