Before Your Very Eyes

Gob Squad & CAMPO | Germany/Great Britain | Belgium

Seven kids in a box mirrored on the one side: they know that we are there, but they cannot see us. A voice, clear as glass and soft like the female incarnation of Stanley Kubrick’s HAL, directs them from off-stage: Grow up! And the children grow playfully into the future and show their life in fast forward: “Before Your Very Eyes”, invited to the Berliner Theatertreffen 2012, is a journey through the ages of life, from puberty through a fortieth birthday until stage death.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen! Gob Squad presents a live show with REAL children. A strange and wonderful opportunity! Be a part of it and watch seven lives in fast-forward ... Before Your Very Eyes!
