These New Puritans: The Blue Door

Running time

In a visually stunning and ambitious stage show with an expanded line-up, These New Puritans premiere new material alongside recompositions of their music.

Specially commissioned for our Hall with sixteen-piece band of sopranos, pitched percussion, brass, electronics and special guests; full theatrical stage production, film projections and lighting installation – this will encompass the past, present and future of These New Puritans.

Exploring themes of sex, death, transcendence and love at the end of the human age, the duo present material from their four studio albums, including last year’s Inside The Rose and upcoming The Cut, on an expanded scale.

Collaborators include photographer/director Harley Weir, director Tupac Martir and artists Daniel Askill and Freya Don.

Led by twin brothers George and Jack Barnett, this performance is the biggest undertaking of the band’s career, seeing them return to the Barbican following their TNP EXPANDED project in 2014.
