Kurt Hentschläger (Austria/USA) - CLUSTER (2009-2012)

Generative Audiovisual Live Show. In the weightless choreography of CLUSTER, human figures appear mostly as anonymous particles, a pulsing, amorphous mass, a cloud of blurry matter from body parts and light. By its never fully predictable generative nature, CLUSTER describes a meta-organism with decidedly anti-individualistic character. © Kurt Hentschläger

Random Dance Rain Room

Dancers from Wayne McGregor | Random Dance will inhabit rAandom International’s acclaimed Rain Room installation in the Barbican’s Curve gallery, performing continuously evolving interventions in the Rain, with a score by contemporary composer Max Richter.

Performances will take place on Sunday 18  November, Sunday 2 December, Sunday 20 January and Sunday 24 February, 11 – 5pm. Audiences will be admitted on a first-come first-served basis from the queue. Admission is free. 

Please note, queues of two to three hours are to be expected.

Rain Room is the latest installation by digital-based contemporary art studio rAndom International. It is a 100square metre field of falling water for visitors to walk through and experience how it might feel to control the rain. On entering The Curve the visitor hears the sound of water and feels moisture in the air before discovering the thousands of falling droplets that respond to their presence and movement.

If you get a chance to see The Joffrey Ballet’s rendition of The Green Table (celebrating its 80th anniversary), I highly recommend it as the anti-war masterpiece is as relevant as it ever. First created in 1932, the work – about life, about death, about the psychological ramifications of a society in strife and terror – unfortunately is as of the times as when the company first performed it in the 60s. I wrote about this performance as well as the other works part of the company’s Human Landscapes fall 2012 engagement here.
