The Public Theater 425 Lafayette Street
Precisely one hour before you arrive, Super Night Shot begins. In a military-style brief, Gob Squad declares a “War on Anonymity” and takes to New York City streets armed with video cameras– embarking on a set of comic and surreal adventures that celebrate unexpected encounters with strangers. You give them a rousing hero’s welcome as they return to the theatre and the footage of the fantastical mission is mixed live into a four-channel, wide screen film.
"A spectacle of breathtaking tension." – Libération
“Fragile and beautiful.” – Le Temps
