Call out for guests for Gob Squad’s latest production:
Creation (Pictures for Dorian)

Premiere May 2018

Gob Squad is a Berlin-based artists collective who have been working together for almost 25 years. As a group (there are 7 of us) we have produced over 40 performance, theatre, video and site-related projects.

For our latest production "Creation (Pictures for Dorian)" we are looking for six guest performers. Rehearsals will take place in several blocks from the end of January until the premiere at the beginning of May at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin.

The show is inspired by Oscar Wilde’s novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. We will not tell the story of the book, but are interested in its related themes:

•    the concept of beauty and its value
•    power in relation to the body, its capital and money-making potential
•    the body’s inevitable deterioration towards death
•    the triangular relationship of artist, object and viewer

With objectification and representation as a central theme, we are looking for performers from a variety of perspectives to share the stage with us and help us question the idea of ’natural beauty’

We are looking for people:
  • of diverse ethnic backgrounds, gender and levels of physical ability/disability
  • aged between 16-22 or over 65
  • all should either have spent their career ‘on stage’ or aspire to a career ‘on stage’ (theatre/performance/dance/opera/catwalk)
  • understand and speak basic English

Rehearsal-castings take place on:
  • Fri 26th Jan 2018 – 15:30-19:00  
  • Tue 30th Jan 2018 – 14:00-17:00
  • Thurs 1st Feb 2018 – 14:00-17:00
(you should be available on 2 out of the 3 days, sessions are paid)

If you are interested, please get in touch with us via e-mail until January 3, and include a picture of yourself and a short statement explaining why you think you are appropriate for the work (approx. 3 sentences).
