Wayne McGregor and Max Richter collaborate for Barbican installation
Duo present dance piece for the Rain Room.
The piece sees a troupe of dancers respond to the installation, a room filled with rain by Random International, except where visitors are standing. It is described as an opportunity to “control the rain”. This is made possible by 3d sensory cameras fixed to the ceiling, which turn the water supply on and off depending on visitors’ movements.
Upcoming performances in the Rain Room will take place on 18 November, 2 December, 20 January and 24 February. The installation is open daily for free without performances until 3 March 2012.
Max Richter’s Infra is on stage at the Royal Opera House until 14 November as part of a Mixed Bill also featuring Viscera and Fool’s Paradise. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance perform FAR from 15 – 17 November and a Mixed Programme of new works in the Linbury Studio Theatre from 22 – 24 November.
