Gob Squad: Super Night Shot

3 10 2019, 21.00
Hall of B. Bakala

A performance of the international creators’ collective confronting the urban landscape of Brno.

Super Night Shot is a magical journey through the night-time streets of a not too distant city. Full of unexpected surprises, the public become co-stars in a movie that celebrates unplanned meetings with strangers and delights in the randomness of urban existence. Both comical and moving, Super Night Shot attempts to elevate the banality of everyday life into the glamour and glitz of a big screen blockbuster. It’s a completely unpredictable show that elevates the everyday into the epic and plays with your perceptions of the familiar. Anything can happen, and usually does.

Super Night Shot is Gob Squad’s most widely toured production, with nearly 200 unique presentations since the project’s inception in 2003, each one shot and screened only once in the host city. The piece has been performed in 4 languages on 6 continents and is still as fresh, dangerous and exciting as on the day the 4 performer/activists first stepped onto the icy streets of Berlin in order to wage their “War on Anonymity”.

The international group of seven artists has been on the scene since 1994. It was established by members of two important theatre academies – the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen and the Nottingham Trent University. At the moment, the group is primarily based in Berlin. Its original and provocative work, merging performance with visual arts, video art and multimedia technologies, has gained recognition around the world.
