Berlin's Gob Squad Riffs on War and Peace
Gob Squad, Berlin's outlandish theater renegades, set their sights on Tolstoy's opus War and Peace, only to discover that neither war nor peace are coming without a fight. The setting is a literary salon, where audience members join the cast in a live theater/video performance in which art and daily life, history and the present, reality and fiction blur. In this American premiere, a never-ending parade of characters dance, dine and duel while performers prepare for scenes as if going into battle, all in order to reframe Tolstoy's central inquiry: Can we live a moral life in an imperfect world? Don't miss the Gob Squad's latest work at NYU's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
