A brave and unique collaboration between two extraordinary artists working together for the first time on a new musical work.

At the heart of the piece is a score by choreographer turned composer Hofesh Shechter, performed live by his band of 30 musicians. Immerse yourself in his trademark percussive grooves, melancholy strings and atmospheric electronic soundscapes.

Shechter has previously composed the score for all of his dance pieces and now he focuses his creative energy on the music and its performance in his first concert.

Set within the visual landscape created by sculptor Antony Gormley, the Barbican stage itself becomes an instrument to be played, in a sensory experience not to be missed.

Also 3pm matinee on Sat 14 Jan
75 mins / interval tbc

Contains moments of loud music.

Commissioned by the Barbican and produced by Hofesh Shechter Company.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and supported by Quercus Trust and Outset Contemporary Art Fund.
In collaboration with Barbican/Guildhall School Creative Learning.
Hofesh Shechter Company is supported by Arts Council England and is Resident Company at Brighton Dome.
