Skirball Center for the Performing Arts - New York University

See the CRITIC'S PICKS Reviews: 
“Truly profound. A haunting, funny vision of a society...for sheer, audacious ambition, nothing tops the collective’s 'Western Society.' Unlike any other you'll encounter this year."
— Ben Brantley, The New York Times, February 19, 2015
Full of "Delicious Surprises! Gob Squad virgins, please stop reading now and GO GET YOUR TICKETS!"
— Helen Shaw, Time Out New York, February 19, 2015

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. 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.
