CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

What is currently on at Barbican Centre (V371)


Shun-kin, inspired by two texts written in 1933, A Portrait of Shunkin and In Praise of Shadows by Japanese writer Jun'ichiro Tanizaki, moves between the neon glow of Japan and the vanished world of the Meiji era and uncovers moments of light in a world of darkness. McBurney and Complicite tell a tale of devotion, passion and power, where beauty is unforgiving and love is blinding. Emerging from traditional Japanese culture this powerful production reveals how close beauty and violence can be. Shun-kin is performed in Japanese with English surtitles.
