“INGENIOUS & DELIGHTFUL! INSPIRED in its telling use of contemporary technology… Throbs with a palpable human pulse and, implicitly, our awareness that all human pulses eventually stop.” - The New York Times
UK and Berlin-based Gob Squad’s last show at The Public was an Under the Radar Festival sensation. This season, Gob Squad returns with the ambitious and poignant BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES, created over the course of the past two years with 9-14 year olds from around New York City. From behind the safety of one-way mirrors, the audience witnesses seven lives lived in fast forward, from age ten to eighty. As the children peer into the future and nostalgically back at their recent past, they prepare to leave childhood behind forever. A must-see experience from this internationally acclaimed theater collective.
The Belgian version of BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES was produced by CAMPO (Belgium) and premiered in 2011.
Music featured in video “Max Flashback” by Lee Rosevere.
