Young Barbican Night: HOME X

Join us for a night inspired by the world of Kakilang’s HOME X.

Explore the work of performing arts company Kakilang, the intersection of arts and digital technology, and themes of home and alternate worlds.

Dive into the 3D world of HOME X using a VR headset, and talk with the show’s 3D Designer Donald Shek as he walks you through how the world of HOME X was designed. Artist Antonio Roberts will teach you how to build an alternate digital world on Mozilla Hubs, and a workshop with Seana Gavin will explore designing new worlds through collage. With a bar and music throughout, the evening will culminate in a live coding audio-visual performance from artistic collaborators +777000 & nunez.

40 £5 tickets are available to Young Barbican members for the HOME X performance in the Pit Theatre on Saturday, 7:30-8:40pm, before joining the rest of the Young Barbican members in the Fountain Room until 10pm.

He recently completed a residency at CFCCA in Manchester, Two Temple Place, and served as lead 3D designer for Home X, a live dance performance blending theatre, music, gaming, and VR.


Antonio Roberts
Antonio Roberts is an artist and curator based in Birmingham, UK, working primarily with video, code, and sound. He is critically engaged with the themes surrounding network culture, and in his practice explores how technology continues to shape ideas of creation, ownership, and authorship. As a performing visual artist and musician, he utilises live coding techniques to demystify technology and reveal its design decisions, limitations, and creative potential.


Seana Gavin
Seana Gavin is a London-based artist working primarily in the medium of collage. She overlays and conjoins distinct images drawn from vintage photographic material to create otherworldly scenes, transforming them into dreamlike environments where the past and future coexist. She is also known for her photographic work, documenting her time involved in the free party rave movement during the 1990s.
