Barbican trust offers up post-summer activities
Summer visitors to luxury hotels in London may be tempted by the events and shows on offer at the Barbican.
September sees the venue play host to Watch Me Move: The Animation Show, which allows visitors to experience over one hundred films by contemporary artists, film industry animators and exponents of experiment cinema.
Popular favourites include Disney Productions, Japan's Studio Ghibli and Pixar, alongside lesser known pioneers such as Brothers Quay, Ray Harryhausen and Lotte Reiniger.
Architecture fans may enjoy Junya Ishigami: Architecture as Air, an installation piece by the famed Japanese architect.
From August 15th to October 1st, the venue will stage an award-winning rendition of Rodgers & Hammerstein's classical musical South Pacific.
Produced by New York's Lincoln Centre Theatre, the performance swept the 2008 Tony Awards and boasts a cast of 40 as well as a live orchestra of 25.
On top of this, the original Hollywood adaptation will be shown on the big screen on October 2nd.
Jericho House's performance of Shakespeare's The Tempest comes to the Barbican on September 21st, with the unique production featuring surviving music that would have been used in the original 400 years ago.
"The new Jericho House production of The Tempest - Shakespeare's last play, and one of his most intriguing - is a must," commented Barbican trust manager Alex Webb.
"It takes place in the hugely atmospheric St Giles' Cripplegate Church, an ancient building which has survived a few tempests itself."
October 4th will include a post show talk with selected members of the company, while an ethics debate will happen on the 15th.
The Barbican will begin showing Pedro Almodovar's latest work, The Skin I Live In from September 2nd onwards, and the film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre on September 9th.
Other new releases includes Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Drive, while classic films A Cottage on Dartmoor and the Lost World will also be shown.
