BARBICAN LIFE


Theatre previews T


heatres throughout London, the commercial productions


in the West End and the subsidised companies such as the National and Royal Shakespeare all seem to be booking further and further ahead and the Barbican is no exception. In fact, the Michael Grandage company at the Noël Coward Theatre is booking “Henry V” with Jude Law until February 2014.


Thus we are now


looking forward to an exciting programme for 2013 . Following the triumphant return of Complicité’s version of “The Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov which sold out last year and returns over Christmas and the New Year, we start January 2013 with the International Mime Festival in, which every year seems to discover rare treats and dazzling surprises for its audiences. This year the Festival will include “Hand Stories” produced by Theatre Vichy-Lausanne in the Pit which will be followed by “Savanna” from the same company.


In the Main House one can see “Haus was Heiri” conceived and directed by Zimmerman and de Perrot followed by “Tatyana”, presented by Deborah Colker’s Dance Company , one of Brazil’s leading dance companies, which explores the four main characters from Pushkin’s classic novel “Eugene Onegin”. Music by Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Prokofiev

highlights the passion of this thrilling production which includes a fifth character, Pushkin himself, in a striking cast. The major season in 2013 will be “Dancing Around Duchamp” from February to June, occupying all the Barbican Centre’s venues with unmissable, multi-


disciplinary theatre, music, film and visual arts events. This unique season brings together key figures from the avant-garde with a shared Dadaist or absurdist sensibility who changed the course of the arts in the last century. Thus the works of Samuel Beckett, John Cage and Merce Cunningham will inspire
