Gypsy, Cabernet, Punk Trans-Global Art Syndicate Family
Gogol Bordello's task is to provoke audience out of the post-modern aesthetic swamp onto a neo-optimistic communal movement towards new sources of authentic energy.
With acts of music, theatre, chaos, and sorcery, Gogol Bordello confronts the jaded and irony-diseased. Out treatment of traditional material is "freewillous", but is not irony-driven and thus real. Our theatre is chaotic and spontaneous, and beacause of that is alarming and response-provoking.
From where we stand it is clear that the world's cultures contain material for endless art possibilities and new mind-stretching combinations, raw joy and survival energy. We chose to work with Gypsy, Cabernet, and Punk traditions. It is what we know and feel. And many more are possible that can make the beloved statement of post-modernism, "...everything has been done" sound as an intellectual error. The troubadours of neo-authentics are coming as a trans-global art syndicate family that has never been witnessed before. PARTY!!!
