15 Nov 2022

Listen to the second episode of our new five-part podcast and video series, At the Barbs.

Join DJ and presenter, Robert Bruce for this five part series, At the Barbs, as he delves into the best of creativity at the Barbican Centre with some of the freshest names from the world of film, music, and even football. From Brutalism to Beyonce, Schneemann to Social Media, this podcast is going to challenge the way you see and think about art, blur the lines of culture and turn your expectations inside out.

This week, Bruce is joined by revered director and writer Koby Adom. They went to see To What End, the coming together of six inspiring short performances that blend dance and live music in a truly experimental way. As well as the show, the pair explore their Ghanaian heritage, the strength and depth of African storytelling, the growing influence of African talent on mainstream media from Black Panther to Burna Boy, and celebrate the power of art to connect new people irrespective of background.
