Barbican Open Lab Showcase Day 1
24 September 2016 / 19:00
Be the first to see raw and unexpected
work from emerging and mid-career artists after their developmental residencies in
the Open Lab program ran in partnership with Rich Mix.
Audiences are presented with 40 minute works
that push the boundaries of performance. You will be fully immersed in
action that takes you from darkness to light, bends and distorts familiar
narratives and asks you to look beyond your own experiences.
The Open Lab program offers week-long
residencies in the Barbican’s Pit Theatre where artists have the opportunity to develop
work without the expectation of a final outcome. This freedom enables them
to expand their creative practice, allowing and encouraging practitioners to take risks
and respond to the unexpected.
Join us to celebrate with the artists at the free after-party from 9pm with music theatre from mingbeast and friends.
