Gob Squad / Campo: Before Your Very Eyes
How do today’s children see their world? A projection of the future by seven child performers and the last part of a trilogy by the Campo production house from Holland as a part of the Archa Theatre’s programme.
For the first time in their 17 year history, Gob Squad do not appear onstage themselves, instead directing a group of 8-14 year olds, which the audience observes in a “safe-room”, made of one-way mirrors. The children onstage peer into the future at themselves as adults, and nostalgically back at their recent past, preparing to leave childhood behind forever. Through the complex interaction of live performance and recorded material, Gob Squad turn ideas about the wisdom of age and the innocence of youth.
Gob Squad’s Before Your Very Eyes is the last part of the CAMPO trilogy of theatre works with children, made for an adult audience. The first part was Josse De Pauw’s üBUNG, followed by Tim Etchells‘ That Night Follows Day.
We will publish more information on the individual events when they are upcoming, so stay tuned!
