Internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad, brings his incredible 360˚ installation Curtain Call back to the Roundhouse as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.
Alongside the installation the Roundhouse will present a series of Curtain Call Live performances – immersive live music gigs.
Curtain Call is brought to you by Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse, an annual season dedicated to introducing new audiences to innovative culture, returning for its fifth consecutive year.
The epic floor-to-ceiling artwork made of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from an 18 metre diameter ring provides a canvas for films, live performance and audience interaction. Arad is reinventing the curtain experience for 2016 by inviting brand new collaborators including: Kutiman; Daniel Landau; Marshmallow Laser Feast; Universal Everything and KIMA. Returning from Curtain Call’s critically acclaimed run in 2011: Babis Alexiadis; Mat Collishaw; Ori Gersht; Greenaway & Greenaway; Gabriel & Shira Klasmer; Christian Marclay; Javier Mariscal; SDNA and David Shrigley.
Showcasing the genre’s original trailblazers, rising stars and the finest home grown Roundhouse talent, highlights include Words First Live, a partnership between BBC Radio 1Xtra and the Roundhouse, featuring Kate Tempest and six of the hottest young spoken word artists from across the UK.
Also don’t miss Debris Stevenson’s Dirtee Verse, a lyrical reinterpretation of Dizzee Rascal’s award-winning debut album Boy In Da Corner.
Poet, battle rapper and teacher Mark Grist returns to The Last Word alongside poet Tim Clare with their new show Only You Can Save Poetry and finally Burning Eye present a special afternoon performance that will entertain parents in need of culture, amusement and adult conversation, Mum’s The Word.
Circolombia took the Roundhouse by storm back in 2011 with their explosive debut show Urban. They now return with the UK premiere of a much-anticipated new production Acelere.
This is no ordinary circus company. The sheer power of the performers, coupled with mind-boggling skill and a willingness to take terrifying risks on stage delivers world-class, gravity-defying performances that you’ll never forget.
Inspired by Colombia’s diverse communities Acelere features 12 of the most talented performers from across Colombia. Mixing spectacular circus with dance and an original soundtrack, it’s set to fill the Roundhouse with the same infectious energy that left such a huge impression on audiences and critics back in 2011.
All of the artists trained and graduated at the National School of Circo Para Todos (“Circus For All”) that supports the most vulnerable, at risk young people in Colombia through circus training. The young company includes some of the most revered circus performers in the world. They’ve been on an incredible journey to be part of an even more incredible company.
A major part of the Library’s contribution to the First World War Centenary, Enduring War examines how people coped with life during the war: from moments of patriotic fervour to periods of anxious inactivity, shock and despair.
Through posters, poetry, books and pamphlets from the period, the exhibition considers attempts to boost morale at home and in the field, as well as presenting individual responses to the conflict, such as letters from Indian soldiers on the Western Front, schoolboys’ descriptions of Zeppelin raids over London and examples of the black humour expressed in trench journals.
