About this show

Gob Squad, Berlin's outlandish theater renegades, set their sights on Leo Tolstoy's opus War and Peace, only to discover that neither war nor peace is 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?
