The current Gob Squad line-up is Johanna Freiburg, Sean Patten, Sharon Smith, Berit Stumpf, Sarah Thom, Bastian Trost and Simon Will.

Other artists are invited to collaborate on particular projects. We are currently working with the performers Mat Hand, Tina Pfurr, Damian Rebgetz, Tatiana Saphir and Laura Tonke. We have an ongoing collaboration with sound designers Sebastian Bark and Catalina Fernandez as well as with video/computer whizzkid Miles Chalcraft and jack-of-all-technical-trades, Chris Umney.

The group is managed by Eva Steffgen. Eva Hartmann has the overview of funding and strategic planning. UK production is taken care of by Ayla Suveren. Christina Runge frequently collaborates as dramaturg and producer. In the Berlin office Caroline Gentz takes care of financial management and Mat Hand coordinates tour management.

The cleaner is called Ulla. Like Beyonce and Madonna, she goes by just her first name.
