Brighton Festival: 

Gob Squad 

Creation (Pictures for Dorian)

UK Premiere 


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.


"Sheer audacious ambition... unlike any other you'll encounter."  - New York Times on Western Society

"Gob Squad virgins, please stop reading now, and go get your tickets!" - Time Out on Western Society
