Gob Squad’s Kitchen
“This feels like one of the most impossible, beautiful, courageous and epic theatrical experiences you can imagine.” THE GUARDIAN
It’s 1965 and everything is just about to happen. Pop, subculture, superstars, feminism, drugs, bright lights, and sex are about to rock the world like never before. Gob Squad take the hand of the King Of Pop himself, Andy Warhol, and take a trip back to the underground cinemas of New York City, back to where it all began.
In this unique piece of theatre, Gob Squad attempt to reconstruct Warhol’s film Kitchen along with elements of his other films such as Eat, Sleep and Screen Test that encapsulated the hedonistic energy of the swinging sixties. How did people dance in 1965? What did they talk about? Had feminism happened yet? Find out in this witty and original show that will take you on a journey back in time and back to the future again.
Gob Squad’s Kitchen is a quest for the original, the authentic and what lurks beneath the shiny surfaces of modern life.
The show has toured widely across Europe and beyond. In January 2012 the piece was performed every day for a month at The Public Theater in New York to huge acclaim. This is their first ever performance in Ireland.
