COME, BEEN AND GONE - MICHAEL CLARK COMPANY
10 -11 FEB 2012
“Rock is my rock. It has been vital to me at a personal level; it has shaped me as an individual as well as an artist” Michael Clark
A critically acclaimed production, made primarily to the music of David Bowie. It also embraces the work of key collaborators Lou Reed and Brian Eno, and touches on some of his influences including the Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk amongst others. Michael Clark chose to become a choreographer believing that actions speak louder than words. He creates work which combines his classical integrity with a more complex, contemporary sensibility embracing virtue and vice, abandon and control, grace and embarrassment. He is renowned for his legendary ollaborations with bands, fashion designers and visual artists including Wire, BodyMap, Leigh Bowery, Trojan and Sarah Lucas.
Commissioned by barbicanbite09 and Dance Umbrella (London), La Biennale di Venezia (Venice) and Dansens Hus (Stockholm) as part of European Network of Performing Arts (ENPARTS).
Co-produced by barbicanbite09, Dance Umbrella, Michael Clark Company, Edinburgh International Festival, Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg and Maison des Arts de Créteil.

Independent on Sunday
"British dance's true iconoclast" "naturally treads the line between the rigour of calssical dance and the reckless glamour of rock and fashion."
"...and outrageously gorgeous piece of modern dance."
British Theatre Guide
"A thunderous electrifying evening of attention-seeking sound, stimulating visuals, and impressive fine-tuned focused dancers. Don't expect to be transported; expect to be jolted out of your seats."
