Creation (Pictures for Dorian)
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?
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.
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 asks why we so crave the eye of the beholder.
