Gob Squad

Contact Young Company in Manchester has teamed up with Gob Squad to create outdoor show While We Were Waiting… Something Changed, an audio-visual 'podwalk' that transforms a phone into a portal, transporting its owner to an alternative reality...

Gob Squad is an international theatre company, and its partnership with Contact has resulted in a unique opportunity for audiences of all ages and tastes to experience the city as they've never seen it before. It runs from July 28–30.

The freshly devised show will explore the rites of passage from adolescence to adulthood on a one-hour guided podwalk that takes the audience on a route beginning and ending at Contact on Oxford Road, passing through transitory, transcendental, and transformational landmarks.
