Theatre and Dance

For one week, from Friday, May 15 to Friday, May 22, 2020, Complicité’s award-winning production of The Encounter (2015), co-produced with and filmed at the Barbican, is available to stream here.

Directed and performed by Simon McBurney, it will be accompanied by a live discussion event and public Q&A on Wednesday, May 20 at 7.30pm. Audiences can register for the event at us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/.

Every Friday, Cheek by Jowl’s Artistic Directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod release a new podcast, in conversation with the host Lucie Dawkins. Insights into theatre, acting, directing and life are discussed around a particular theme each week. The podcast is available here.
