It’s 1965, and everything is about to happen. The German/British collective Gob Squad invites you to take the hand of the King Of Pop himself, Andy Warhol, and take a trip back to where it all began. Gob Squad’s Kitchen reconstructs Warhol’s films on a journey back to the underground cinemas of New York City in 1965. In the uncertain quest to illuminate the past for a new generation, Gob Squad reflects on the nature of authenticity, our future, and the hidden depths beneath the shiny surfaces of modern life.
“What gradually emerges out of the apparent chaos is an increasingly moving meditation on the nature of self and the unknowability of the past.” -Guardian (UK)
“Brilliantly, poignantly, and hilariously accomplished, Gob Squad's Kitchen draws spectators right into the action.” -Richard Schechner
