‘Gob Louis Vuitton Luggage Bags Squad’s Kitchen’ Photo by karen fraserhaving watched an advance video, i had a pretty good idea of what the gob squad was bringing to the walker art center for out there 2011.But as is usually the case for a theatrical experience on video, the reality was something much more than what was recorded. This is somewhat ironic, as the piece, kitchen(You’ve never had it so good), is presented as a series of recreations of Andy Warhol films, and nearly all of the www.furrst.com action is shown on a giant video screen that hangs at the front of the stage.The actors are behind the screen, acting in front of a(Mostly)Fixed camera, recreating a trio of warhol projects:Kitchen, screen test, and sleep. That they are there, acting live, is no secret.In fact, the audience is guided backstage at the show’s beginning to see the ducttaped video equipment, feel the hot studio lights, and see the chair, kitchen set, and bed used later in the evening. The piece itself isn’t as much a recreation of the obscure film but a meditation on the influence itand the rest of the 1960s counterculturehave had in the decades since warhol and his factory friends decided to make art in their own image.So instead of trying become warhol or edie furrst sedgwick or any of the other denizens of the factory, they are instead themselves playing themselves in the film. In and of Cheap Louis Vuitton Handbags Sale itself, this action is a lot of fun.The actors are well aware of the absurdity of it all, but go for it with full gusto.The company, a british and german collective, play at their idea of what americans of the era would be like, drinking instant”Kwafee,”Burning a bra(Bought from target, actor sharon smith admits), and trying on different personas along the way. All this time, the barriers between the audience and the performers are broken down, as the cast selects people to first take part in the side films and then to take their places on the stage. It’s the perfect embodiment of warhol’s popart aesthetic, making regular members of the audience stars for their own”15 minutes”At the walker.All of this heightens the feeling that anything could happenone of the rarest reactions you’ll ever feel at a scripted theatrical event. In the end,Gob squad’s kitchenreminded me of the late, very lamented theatre de la jeune lune.Like that ensemble, the gob squad love to play with the very forms of theater itself and recraft it into something rare, thrilling, and beautiful.Gob squad’s kitchen(You’ve never had it so good)Continues today and saturday.
