    Late Night

    Barbican - The Pit

    What do you do at night when your country is crumbling by day? Well there’s music, singing, a drink, some tricks to pass the time and always the same absurd sense of waiting.


    Set among the debris of a dilapidated ballroom and with the otherworldly feel of a David Lynch film, this poetic and emotive piece unfolds to a nostalgic soundtrack, speaking of a Europe in ruins.




    “Late Night creates its own distinctly textured world, a timeless place that is utterly of the now, yet recalls Europe’s 20th-century history.”

    The Guardian

    “ At times this feels like the future, at times the past. Sometimes it feels post-apocalyptic, sometimes like the dawn of something new and beautiful”

    The Stage

    “we are given glimpses into a life that at times seems like a post-apocalyptic wasteland and at others a strange utopia of carefree bliss, of love and liberation from society.”
