Visions and Voices

REDCAT presents the internationally acclaimed artists collective Gob Squad. Precisely one hour before you arrive, the filming of Super Night Shot begins. Declaring war on anonymity, Gob Squad takes to the streets of Los Angeles armed with video cameras. Members of the public become co-stars as the film celebrates unplanned meetings with strangers and delights in the randomness of urban existence. The footage of this fantastical mission is then mixed live at performance time into a four-channel widescreen film. Comical, surreal and moving, Super Night Shot is an unpredictable foray into everyday life that plays with our perceptions of the familiar. Anything can happen, and usually does.

Gob Squad is made up of artists from the UK and Germany who create performances and videos that search for beauty in everyday experiences and words of wisdom from passing strangers. The seven core members work collaboratively on each project from concept to direction to performance, exploring the point where theatre meets art, media and real life. Currently based in Berlin, the collective has delighted audiences around the world. Their past visits to the United States have included residencies at The Public Theater, Yale Repertory Theatre, Walker Art Center, REDCAT and Center Theatre Group.
