Dancing with our Neighbours

Hello. We are Gob Squad, a group of UK and German artists. We make performances and videos which search for beauty in the everyday, and look for words of wisdom from a passing stranger. We are an artists collective, the seven core members working collaboratively on the concept, direction and performance of our work. Other artists, performers and technicians are invited to collaborate on particular projects.

Silver Lion 2024 – Biennale Teatro in Venice

“We, Stefano Ricci and Gianni Forte, as Artistic Directors, have just made our choice for the award of the Silver Lion 2024 of the Biennale Teatro. Our attention has exclusively been focused on you, Gob Squad, being one of the most profound, poetic, political, innovative artists of the theatrical language in the world.”


“Philosophical truths lie behind the curtain of banalities… a small but perfectly formed school of empathy which tries its best to understand the life of another person.”
