Barbican Weekender: Extraordinary Voices

About

Exploring the use of the voice through music, film, song, art and performance, Barbican Weekender: Extraordinary Voices brings the centre alive with a weekend of events from artists & performers, choirs, poets, beatboxers, storytellers and interactive installations. Hear incredible music acts such as soul queen Irma Thomas, Garifuna singers Aurelio / Danyel Waro / Carlou D, traditional Egypt folk musicians Suhbagiyya, Grammy-nominated Cajan band Feufollet and the infamous Frank Chickens. Don't miss choirs from across the city including the London Gay Men's Chorus and Streetwise Opera. For beats and spoken word, watch Tongue Fu and beatboxing sensation The Boxettes tackle topics from every day life. Discover the voices of Barbican Young Poets and Julian Opie's installation. You can also join Phil Minton to create The Feral Choir or Ida Barr's Mash-Up and perform in foyer. Transform your ideas into a fashion staement with artist Reza Ben Gajra and visit a Parisian cafe as Strangeworks invite you To Sleep Perchance to Dream, and don't forget to visit the Whitecross Street Party, plus much, much more... In association with home live art.
