WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
UK and Berlin-based Gob Squad's last show at The Public was an Under The Radar 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 8-14 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 angst-ridden teens to hunched geriatrics. As we adults try to stop the process of aging and preserve youth as long as we can, the children peer into the future and nostalgically back at their recent past, as 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 2012.
