Theatre: Super Night Shot

Gob Squad
Featuring Mat Hand, Erik Pold, Sarah Thom and Simon Will
Sound design and mix by Jeff McGrory and Sebastian Bark
 STC Studio Underground
10 - 13 February, 2012

Gob Squad have a manifesto, and Super Night Shot makes its point very effectively: they claim they are waging war on anonymity, that each of us is not just one more face in the crowd, “easy to replace and easy to forget in a town that doesn’t really need us”. Their mission is to make anonymous people randomly encountered into stars.
And that’s the secret of this unique little show. Really nothing extraordinary happens, nothing (at least not this night) profound gets said, yet there’s an energy, a style and, somehow, a point to it all. In a month when the people of Perth have taken to the streets in the pursuit of art in massive, potentially history-making numbers, it’s great to have the Gob Squad here to catch us at it.
