Barbican Weekender - two days of music, film, theatre, dance, visual art and spoken word.


Inspired by The Surreal House exhibition in the Barbican Art Gallery, Barbican Weekender rounds off our packed summer season with two days of music, film, theatre, dance, visual art and spoken word. You're invited over to our place for a summer party, so grab a group of mates and head down for some upside down, back to front fun. Dance until you drop at our Surreal Silent Disco Release your inner wordsmith with giant Magnetic Poetry Wall Throw away the instructions for Surreal DIY Rediscover the unique universe of David Lynch films Watch an immersive new performance by artist Tai Shani Send a postcard from our Surreal Pop-Up Shop Take an Alice in Wonderland-style trip around your subconscious with StrangeWorks Explore Dot Comedy 's weird and wonderful maze in Get Lost Providing the soundtrack to the weekend are our favourite World in Motion drummers, who return to show case their skills with funk hip-hop band Lazy Habits and Sci-fi cartoon jazz quartet London Snorkelling Team and when you're feeling peckish, grab a bite from the food stalls in the centre and at the Whitecross Street Party. Just for families, our special events include Lone Twin's Beastie and Family Film Club will be screening Toy Story 3, where toys come alive in this alternate surreal tale. Don't rush home in the evening, stay late and enjoy free entertainment on our Foyers or book tickets for the hip-hop dance premiere of Boy Blue Entertainment's Over The Edge in the Theatre, Brazilian samba and morna from the Cape Verdean diva Mayra Andrade plus sweet-voiced Indigenous Australian singer Gurrummul. Most events are free!! More Info at barbican.org.uk/weekender Contact: info@barbican.org.uk / 020 7638 4141
