About the Show/Event

Orlando
Information for Orlando at Barbican Centre, West End (Play). Live cinema meets performance in this galloping romp through 400 years of history starring a heroine who is born a hero, or a hero who becomes a heroine. For Orlando, it doesn't really matter. As visionary today as it was when written in 1928, Virginia Woolf's dazzling novel on gender fluidity is gleefully adapted, extending across centuries to the present day. As Orlando travels between historical periods, countries and lovers, glancing knowingly at the audience, their journey is caught on camera, mixed with pre-recorded footage and projected - all with a wardrobe team making quick-fire changes in plain sight. Regular collaborators Katie Mitchell and Alice Birch explore Woolf's material, interweaving life and art, reality and fiction, in an optimistic examination of how people, nature, systems and reigns are in a constant state of flux. Featuring a narrator, eight actors and crew synchronised to the second with adept precision, Orlando defies rigid categorisation in more ways than one. Performed in German with English surtitles
Approximate runtime 105minutes (including any interval).
Age Advisory: 16+ sexual content, nudity, violence and scenes that some people may find upsetting
