For 25 years we have been having very good times in the beautiful new stage worlds of the performance collective Gob Squad. Even the upcoming end of the world will not change this.

Gob Squad has always been blurring the boundaries between art, theatre and "real" life and is one of the most renowned European performance groups and Kampnagel regulars. The collective is a pioneer in the use of video technology on stage and has already used live video links from the streets to the theatre in its performance classic SUPER NIGHT SHOT in 2003, when "streaming" was still a foreign English word here in Germany.

For SHOW ME A GOOD TIME, Gob Squad had originally planned once again to explore the streets, equipped with video cameras, in order to find a good time with random passers-by. Due to Corona, spectators were not allowed in theatres for the June premiere at HAU in Berlin. Instead it took place as a 12-hour live stream online. Only one person stood on stage at HAU and sang, danced or talked via a camera to the outside world; the remaining Gob Squad performers were scattered at home or on the streets and met strangers for joint actions via a split-screen, always looking for good times in bad times. At the Summer Festival the work is now performed for the first time in the theatre where the original duration of 12 hours is spread over four shows in four days. With the performers on the streets of Hamburg filming live, and the audience watching in the theatre at Kampnagel. Additionally there will be an online version of these shows for an audience watching on their computers from their homes (more information and tickets here). No matter where you watch from, you will most likely have a very good time!

Tickets for the online live stream are available here!
