1984: Back to no Future

25.08.21 – 27.08.21

Forestillingen er med engelsk tale

Vi er i år 1984. Gob Squad er en gruppe af hvide teenagers, der bor i Vesteuropa. Den Kolde Krig er meget kold, og har produceret atomkraft nok til at tilintetgøre hele verden flere gange. Mens de vokser op under den geopolitiske skygge af kommunisme vs. kapitalisme, er disse teenagers lige så optagede af MTV Video Music Awards, der afholdes første gang i 1984, som de er af truslen om atomkatastrofer.

De går tilbage i tiden. Til en tid, hvor de ikke kendte hinanden.

Iscenesat i et musikvideo-studio á la 80’er-poppens guldalder, tilbyder Gob Squad dig en green screen-rejse til fortiden med genindspilninger af ikoniske videoer. Ikke på grund af nostalgi, men med en klar mission: De vil ikke kun ændre pophistorien, men også omprogrammere historien og ændre selve verden. Til noget bedre.

Varighed 90 min.

The year is 1984 and the starting point is a collective of artists who have yet to meet. Gob Squad is a group of white teenagers who live in western Europe. The Cold War is very cold and has produced enough nuclear deterrents to destroy the world many times over. While they come of age beneath the geopolitical shadow war of communism vs. capitalism, these teenagers are just as preoccupied with MTVs Video Music Awards, which is held for the first time 1984, as they are of the threat of nuclear armageddon.

They go back in time. To a time where they didn’t know each other.

Arranged in the studio of a music video not unlike the eighties-pop golden age, Gob Squad offers you a green screen powered journey to the past with re-recordings of iconic videos. Not for the sake of nostalgia, but more as an ambitious attempt to reprogram history and create visions of a better future.
