Gob Squad, Creation (Pictures for Dorian)

Gob Squad

'Gob Squad (are) the one company of whom I'm a fan first, and a critic second. They're more like a band than almost any other theatre company.' Matt Trueman,

Creation is the realm of gods and artists, who create beauty through sheer will and their own bare hands. But who decides what is beautiful?

Creation (Pictures for Dorian) is inspired by Oscar Wilde’s iconic character Dorian Gray, who remains eternally youthful at a terrible cost to his soul. There’s probably a little bit of Dorian in all of us. Joined onstage by older and younger local performers, Gob Squad peeps behind the vanity mirror to question beauty, morality and power - and ask why we so crave the eye of the beholder.

British/German arts collective Gob Squad have performed all over the world for 25 years. Now middle-aged, they have no desire to exit the stage just yet.

'Gob Squad use the whole world (or as much of it as they can find) as their canvas, and everyone in it as a potential participant' Guardian
