Darren Johnston Creates New Piece For Barbican

“If there was a Turner Prize for dance, Darren Johnston would undoubtedly be on the shortlist” - The Times

In ‘Zero Point’, Darren Johnston seamlessly merges visual arts, theatre and dance exploring the intersections of spirituality and science in a sensory journey. The minimalist aesthetics is inspired by his time spent in Kochi, Japan. Electronic music pioneer Tim Hecker provides a magnetizing soundscape. Ballet dancer Hana Sakai performs with an ensemble of Japanese dancers. The piece was shown as a work-in-progress at a sold out Barbican on 25-27 May, and premiered at the Museum of Art Kochi, Japan on 25 June 2016.
