BE PART, Wrong Families,Gob Squad, Homo Novus, Rīga,

Using core themes from their performance ‘Western Society’ the Gob Squad will run a 6-day workshop, approaching each day sharing different strategies for co-creation, guiding participants through social tasks; walking, cooking, karaoke, rituals, slideshows and storytelling, all framed by the concept of ‘wrong families’ and notions of collectivity, to queer the images of the hetro-normative family and celebrate the families we choose.

Wrong Families runs during Homo Novus festival 2023 within the framework of the Symposium and International Assembly IV. Every day from Wednesday, September 6 to Saturday, September 9 at 17:30, the Gob Squad Festival School will have a public debrief at the Festival Centre. Join the team as they process the day’s events and give us an insight into their collective process. More information can be found here.
