These New Puritans: The Blue Door

Performing with a special expanded line-up, These New Puritans premiere new material from their new album Inside The Rose, alongside recompositions of their music.

This new performance – composed specifically for the Barbican Hall – includes minimalist, pitched percussion and electronics and explores themes of sex, death, transcendence and love at the end of the human age. An industrial-style stage installation is met by visuals from George Barnett and collaborators including photographer and director Harley Weir, filmmaker and artist Daniel Askill and photographer Angelo Pennetta. 

Led by twin brothers George and Jack Barnett, the group defies categorisation, and this performance – the biggest undertaking of their career to date – is no exception. They return to the Barbican following their TNP EXPANDED project in 2014.
