Satellites - Cancelled

Satellites 2

Unfortunately due to extreme adverse weather forecast for this weekend we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the outdoor site-specific performance of Satellites. 

Ticket holders are being contacted in due course.


Satellites is a new performance for the Barbican Highwalks created by Andy Field in collaboration with performers from Guildhall School’s Performance and Creative Enterprise programme, and commissioned by the Barbican and the Museum of London. In it the walkways and spaces stand in for the whole city of London, imagined through a constellation of intimate encounters with over a dozen young artists, each of whom has their own story of the city to share. 

Audience members are invited to wander across this space, seeking out performers and hearing what they have to tell them.  Satellites telescopes together past, present and future into a fractured portrait of London as a city that is at once real and imagined, vast and intimate, as precarious as its inhabitants and as concrete as the Highwalks themselves.

Satellites is commissioned by the Barbican and Museum of London.

About the artists

Andy Field

Andy Field is an artist, writer, and the co-director of the performance collective Forest Fringe. He creates formally unusual projects that invite us to consider our relationships both to the spaces we inhabit and the people around us. Over the last decade this has manifested itself across a range of forms and disciplines, including street games, event scores, installations, interactive encounters, studio theatre shows and one-to-one performances. 

Guildhall School students

Artists studying on the Guildhall School’s Performance and Creative Enterprise degree programme are involved in this performance. Run in association with the Barbican Centre, this new degree is for artists from a range of music and theatre backgrounds. Open to musicians, composers, theatre makers, devisors, spoken word artists and poets, it is intended for those who want to develop their performance, production, collaboration and leadership skills for employment in the arts industry. The degree is all about participation in cross-artform projects, enabling artists to collaborate, communicate and lead in a range of cultural and socially-engaged contexts, helping them to develop curiosity, stimulate imagination and generate original work:
