Performance of Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker at the Barbican Pit

About

Part pop concert, part controlled chaos, orchestrated by a rigorous director – this is Japanese subculture conveyed in all its multi-coloured, cacophonous, frenetic glory.

You’ll be equipped with rain poncho and ear guards but you’ll still be surprised by what is thrown at you, as twenty-five actors storm the stage. Confronting you at breakneck speed, they bombard the senses with a precisely choreographed medley of dance, music, bellowed slogans and video clips.
 
Founded by Tokyo-based artist Toco Nikaido, Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker pays homage to otagei – geeky dance routines performed by superfans to their Japanese pop idols. Kitted out in rainbow-hued costumes and armed with an abundance of disposable props, her riotous company breaks down the barriers between cast and audience as it hurtles towards a festival-like finale that invites everyone to take part.

45 mins/no interval

Age guidance 14+ (contains very loud music)

This performance includes water, confetti and food products being thrown at the audience, who will be encouraged to leave coats, bags and shoes in the cloakroom, and provided with a poncho before the show starts.
